Well it’s that time again (no, not peanut butter jelly time…or hammer time). It’s coffee spotlight time–a chance for us to help you get acquainted with our coffee origins! All of our delicious Roasterie beans have traveled across the world just to end up in your cup. The least you could do is learn a little bit about their journey, right?
For this edition, we’re shining our spotlight on our coffees from Panama. Panama is known for its exquisite and complex coffee beans. Our Panamanian beans hail from the Boquete coffee region, known for its distinct microclimates and rich volcanic soil. Fun fact about the Boquete region: It is a part of a volcanic mountain range known as the Cordillera de Talamanca, a range that begins in neighboring Costa Rica and ends in Panama.
Yielding sweet and fruity notes, beans from Panama are grown in near perfect conditions at above 3,600 feet. But what sets Panamanian coffee apart from the pack isn’t necessarily the beans, but the people who pick them.
Our Panama beans are picked by the skilled hands of the indigenous Ngäbe-Buglé community. It is because of this community’s knowledge and expertise that the beans we purchase are of such high quality. The Ngäbe-Buglé have passed their harvesting and quality control techniques down generation to generation.
One taste of our Panamanian coffee and you’ll realize the extra care and skill of the Ngäbe-Buglé make all the difference!
