Located between Costa Rica to the west and Columbia to the east, Panama’s small family farms are producing unique and delicious coffees. The majority of the best coffee is grown in the Boquete area in the Chirqui District. The coffees are grown on small family-owned farms by traditional methods and are shade-grown. These growing practices combined with advanced processing methods yield coffees that distinct from their neighbors and deliciously complex. Add a working environment that is one of the best in Central America in terms of wages and worker protection, and it is easy to feel good about the coffees of Panama.
