1924, engineer Mönniche finally retired from the Panama Canal, and along with his wife, Julia moved to Finca Lerida. Here he built his house – entirely by hand – in a Norwegian countryside style and built the first Coffee Plantation by gravity in Panama.

Aside from this, he designed and patented the “sifon” a device made to separate good beans from the bad. This device is now is used worldwide by many coffee plantations, and it is still working in Finca Lerida, where Mönniche’s old processing plant still processes coffee of excellent quality.

Finca Lerida’s reputation is as old as the first coffee that Panama exported to Germany in 1929. The high-quality coffee produced inside this exceptional plantation made its international buyers realize that there was more to Panama that just its Canal. Finca Lerida’s located 10 km uphill from Boquete.
