Panama

The trip to Panama 🙂

Panama is probably not as well known as Brazil or Ethiopia for its coffee production, it is small but exclusive! You get here tropical gourmet coffee with a correspondingly high price!

  • The first coffee plants came to Panama at the beginning of the 19th century. A retired captain took them to Boquete.
  • The altitude of 1,100 – 1,400 m, the influence of the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, the rich volcanic soils and the shadow of the Baru volcano give the coffee its diverse flavours.
  • The tribes of the Ngobe-Bugle Indians were from the beginning a central part of the coffee industry in Panama.
  • Varieties: Maragogype, Mundo Novo, Catuai, Bourbon, Pacamara, Cattura, Typica and last but not least the champion among the Panama coffees Geisha.
  • Geisha came 1930 from Ethiopia via Costa Rica in 1963 to Panama.
  • Meanwhile, the Geisha Hacienda LaEsmeralda is the second most expensive coffee in the world and has won many awards with its notes of jasmine, bergamot, mandarin and vanilla.
  • Hand-picked, partly sun-dried / partly in dryers.
  • Export 2014: 43,000 x 60 kg bags
  • The coffee is distinguished by its very full body and a delicate aroma, is very low in acidity and digestibility.
  • Delicate, sweet structure with a lively, refreshing acidity and floral to fruity aromas.
