Panama Coffee

Panama’s coffee production is miniscule compared to some of the larger coffee producing countries. In 2013/14, the country only exported 45,000 sacks

The history of Panamanian coffee began when European immigrants settled the region in the late 19th century, bringing coffee with them. Located in the western extremity of the country, the province of Chiriqui (valley of the moon in the language of the native peoples that once inhabited this region) was the area first settled with coffee. Today there are two indigenous tribes that play an important role in the coffee production who hail from Chiriqui - the Ngobe and the Bugle – and the country’s two prime coffee regions of Boquete and Volcán are located within the province.

Today, there are primarily three coffee producing areas ranging in elevation from 1,000 to 1,600 metres, with Boquete as the oldest and best known. In addition to Boquete, the area of Volcán is situated on the steep, southwestern slopes of Volcán Barú; finally, Renacimiento is the least-known area due to its remote location.  Some important factors contributing to quality, especially for Boquete and Volcán, are the good transport and processing infrastructure, including exceptionally run wet processing stations and dry mills.

Cafe panameño

La producción de café de Panamá es minúscula en comparación con algunos de los países productores de café más grandes. En 2013/14, el país solo exportó 45,000 sacos.

La historia del café panameño comenzó cuando los inmigrantes europeos se establecieron en la región a fines del siglo XIX, trayendo café con ellos. Ubicada en el extremo occidental del país, la provincia de Chiriquí (valle de la luna en el idioma de los pueblos nativos que una vez habitaron esta región) fue la primera zona asentada con café. Hoy en día, hay dos tribus indígenas que desempeñan un papel importante en la producción de café que provienen de Chiriquí, los ngobe y los bugle, y las dos principales regiones cafetaleras del país, Boquete y Volcán, están ubicadas dentro de la provincia.

Hoy en día, existen principalmente tres áreas de producción de café que van desde 1.000 hasta 1.600 metros, con Boquete como el más antiguo y más conocido. Además de Boquete, el área de Volcán está situada en las laderas empinadas y al sudoeste del Volcán Barú; Finalmente, Renacimiento es el área menos conocida debido a su ubicación remota. Algunos factores importantes que contribuyen a la calidad, especialmente para Boquete y Volcán, son la buena infraestructura de transporte y procesamiento, incluidas las estaciones de procesamiento húmedo y las plantas de secado que funcionan excepcionalmente.

Major Languages of Panama

The main and official Panama language is Spanish, which is widely spoken by most of the people in the country. This Panama language is loved and respected by every citizen and gives them a unique and separate identity.
