An amazing and unique specialty coffee discovery adventure
What’s in store for you?
Your amazing and unique specialty coffee discovery adventure begins when you arrive in David Airport (Enrique Malek) DAV.
Our team will be waiting to collect you at the arrival gate and will take you and the rest of our intrepid travelers up to Boquete. About a 45 minute drive up a new 4 lane highway.
You will be spending the next 3 nights in Boquete at our Host hotel, Boquete Luxury Mountain Villa.
After checking in and freshening up we are happy to host you all for lunch at one of our favorite local restaurants. Then, it’s off to see your first coffee farm!
The first farm we will be taking you to is Horqueta #1.
A beautiful, high altitude coffee farm and the 3rd farm we acquired back in 2015.
This is the perfect example of a coffee farm that is mid-way through its renovation. With a mix of older trees that we inherited and thousands of baby saplings that were planted over the last few years, and that are now starting to bear fruit!
Here you will also see the new and improved workers accommodation, now fitted with running water, flush toilets, gas stove kitchen, electricity, real beds and 5-inch mattresses. All provided as part of our socially sustainable program for the farmers.
On Saturday morning bright and early we load you up in our vehicles and take you to visit finca Cuarto Caminos. The very first farm we acquired back in January 2015, and where the company gets its name.
In an action packed day on this farm you will visit our 77,000 sapling nursery and receive a demonstration and explanation of how we select the best seeds of the most in-demand varietals.
With a guided tour of our beneficio, we will take you through each and every stage in the coffee process from when the ripe red cherries arrive from the farms, all the way through to the exportable green bean.
We will explain how we operate a fully closed loop system where nothing goes to waste and nothing affects our surrounding environment.
In our vermicomposting system, the coffee cherry pulp is collected, treated and fed to our thousands of Californian Earthworms in our on-site “worm hotel”.
The dried coffee parchment is kept and stored then used to power the furnace that heats the dryer that dries the coffee, the following year.
You will get to see more workers accommodations, meet some of the kids who live on the farms and get a feel for what it is like to be a real coffee farmer.
After lunch, catered on the farm, it’s time to visit the coffee testing laboratory.
In what is the highlight of the tour, you will receive hands-on demonstrations in how you cup and grade specialty coffee. This will be followed up by a class on how to brew the perfect cup of coffee
On Sunday morning we will take you to the final farm on your tour, Finca Loma de Los Cedros.
You will spend your morning walking through an amazing, fully producing, high altitude specialty coffee farm.
Our team will give you a detailed explanation of each coffee varietal, our unique farming practices such as why we plant in horizontal contours versus traditional vertical, straight lines.
In this farm you will see our “art of coffee science” at work. This is where our team of agronomists and our biologist are applying the humus and “liquid gold” from our vermicomposting project.
We round off the day with a visit to The Perfect Pair. After a weekend of learning about specialty coffee, it’s time to sit down and enjoy some for yourself.
Paired, of course, with our wide selection of decadent Panamanian and Belizean chocolate products.
