Chiriqui Province Specialty Coffee is one of the top quality coffees in this region. This farm Finca Don Vicente mainly grows Bourbon and Caturra varietals. There are are also many Geisha and Gran Colombia varietals around the farm. These are from a different age groups so their harvests time can vary.

While walking around New York City I always think about Chiriqui Province and their Specialty Coffee. I can reach for a mango and pull it right from the mango tree behind the room I was staying.

The province features a variety of climates, from hot and humid lowlands to the cool and moist highlands. The district is home to Fortuna Forest Reserve.

As you can see from the coffee tree the ripe cherries are ready to be collected. I enjoy coding with coffee specialty when drinking a Specialty coffee from a Latin America coffee farm.

Ground roasted coffee. Catuaí variety, grows at a height of 1370 MASL a coffee with sweet aromas of caramel, fragrance to panela, with a creamy body; in its flavor we can taste citric notes and red fruits like the mora, with a base of caramel; it has a fine and balanced acidity, leaving on your palate a very lasting post taste. Its dark medium roast and a washing process highlight the taste of this delicious coffee.

Coffee Farm Videos from Honduras Finca La Perseverancia

Honduras coffee farm Teupasenti

These couple of coffee farm videos directly from Teupasenti in Honduras. Catuai, Villa Sarchi, Pacamara and Lempira coffee varieties grow in this beautiful coffee farm. Visit my Honduras coffee section to learn more about Latin America Specialty Coffee.

Honduras is the largest producer of coffee in Central America. It is surprising how little is known about Specialty coffee from Honduras. It was only until 2001 that Honduras’ coffee production has increased drastically. Honduras was a late blossom in the coffee industry compared to its Central America neighbors. Only until recently we have seen fantastic coffee coming from Honduras.

The difficult and detailed process it takes to produce a great cup of coffee in Honduras. Contact me if you like to get coffee from this coffee farm and code with coffee. As you can see the farm is very dense and shares the land with a variety of trees such as banana, oranges and others. This helps to bring the coffee notes more alive.

These coffee farm videos from Teupasenti in Honduras really shows you where specialty coffee comes from. The landscape is fantastic with the biodiversity of this farm. Honduras was producing around six million bags of coffee a year around 2011. This was more than Guatemala and Costa Rica combined.

These videos were taken by my friend @memetecnicoffee visit his Instagram profile to learn more. His brand in Honduras is @bandoladeorocafe

Teupasenti belongs to the region of El Paraiso. This is one of the oldest and largest coffee regions in Honduras. This coffee farm produces mainly Lempira, Catuai and Villa Sarchi coffee varieties. Contact me if you have any questions or if you like to try coffee from this farm in Honduras. Thank you!

Latin America Coffee Farms in Chiriqui Panama

Baby coffee plants growing in Chiriqui Panama

I have visited many places in Latin America and still need to visit many more. Coffee farms Chiriqui Panama are located near the border of Costa Rica in Chiriqui. It takes about 3 hours to reach this city by car driving from Panama City, Panama.

Coffee production first sprang up in Panama in the early 1900s. At that time, though, there was wild coffee throughout the Pacific Ocean side of Panama. It was the Boquete Valley that stood up to lead the burgeoning industry. Pioneering arabica coffee, which the International Coffee Organization today recognizes as some of the highest quality in the world. Panama honey processed coffee is one of the preferred by many coffee lovers due to its caramel and dark chocolate notes.

This farm grows mainly Caturra, Bourbon and some Geisha coffee varieties. There are some old Bourbon coffee plants that still produce great quality coffee cherries. These plants are over 10 years old and harvest once a year. Coffee farms Chiriqui Panama are situated around the same region, but I had the pleasure to visit my friends farm Finca Don Vicente. This is a family owned farm which has been running for generations.

Coffee Farm Pictures in Chiriqui, Panama

I will be posting more coffee farm pictures during this week about coffee farms I have visited in Latin America. This post its only part of a series of pictures I took at many Latin America coffee farms. If you like you can grab the Panama coffee mug and show your support. Perfect mug to take to work and code with coffee if you’re a developer.

I enjoy taking pictures of coffee farms in Latin America. The idea is to show you where Cocotu’s coffee comes from. I also like to show you the hard work it takes to produce a great cup of specialty coffee and why it’s worth the price.

For most, the above image means nothing. But, this means a lot when grading a coffee farm’s use of chemicals. As you can see little plants are growing one the soil, there are also insects like ants and worms hanging out. If a coffee farm is heavily under pesticide use you would not see life on the ground under the coffee trees.

Quillabamba is a coffee region about 4 hours away by car from Cusco. This coffee region is at the ‘ceja de selva’ means at the border of the jungle. I visited some coffee farms over there together with my friend Raul from Kaffee 3 Granos. Raul showed me the entire coffee process from harvesting to producing a great cup of specialty coffee.

See some of the pictures of Quillabamba’s night life to the beautiful landscapes this coffee region has.
