 THE STORY BEHIND

This is the best non-Gesha non-Ethiopia natural-processed lot we sourced this year!

Carmen Estate is located in the Volcan Valley part of the Baru Volcano region of Panama, near Boquete. The valley is considered the most important coffee growing region in Panama due to its elevation, dense vegetation, volcanic soil and diverse micro-climates. The farm's Red Caturra variety is grown at an altitude of 1700 meters.

Carmen Estate is a family owned farm under the current leadership of Carlos Aguilera. They produce about 1200 bags of green coffee annually of Catuai, Caturra and Typica varietals but this coffee is solely Red Caturra. Carmen Estate practices strict agricultural and environmental standards; the farm is more than half forested by native trees, which naturally shade the coffee.

Carmen Estate has won numerous awards, including:
Best of Panama 2010 4th Place
Best of Panama 2007 5th Place

Best of Panama 2006 3rd Place
