Boquete is to coffee as Bordeaux is to wine. Panama's coffee has been considered to be the best coffee in the world more times than any other place in the last 10 years. So. it would be a little bit strange if you came to Boquete and you left without visiting a coffee plantation, don't you think? Prepare your taste buds for an explosion of flavors!
Several of the world's best coffee producers give you the unique opportunity to have a complete coffee tour through their coffee farms, processing factories (" beneficio"), roasting plants and tasting facilities. Café Ruiz begins their tour at their coffee farm in Palmira, Kotowa Coffee has its coffee plantation in the Palo Alto region where you'll have a chance to see a coffee mill that is almost 100 years old, and both Café Suárez and Finca Lérida run their coffee tours at their farms in Alto Quiel.
At a coffee tour in Panama you'll learn everything about the coffee process, from when the coffee tree is planted and starts growing, until the way coffee is brewed for you to drink it. You'll be able to appreciate the importance of the Ngöbe Buglé indigenous that hand pick the red coffee berries when they are perfectly ripe.
You'll also have a glance of the shade grown technique which only allows the precise amount of sun on each coffee tree and protects the environment. And you'll end with a cupping, in which you'll sample different flavors and roasts.Rates
