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.

The plan was to build a small guest house in the middle of the farm shown in the picture above. Hopefully when things get back to ‘normal’ we will have the pleasure to stay over night in this fantastic coffee farm.
