When selecting a name to represent our coffee brand, we chose Cuatro Caminos for several reasons. First, it's the name of the first farm we acquired back in 2014. This farm is now home to our nursery, our coffee mill, and many workers and their families. So the entire journey of our coffee starts and ends on this farm.
With 11 high-altitude specialty coffee farms in our portfolio, our own on-site nursery, post-harvest processing facilities, quality control laboratory, and in-house roasting, we can offer micro-lots of the world's most in-demand varietals, fully traceable through the entire value chain and delivered to your door.
Mahogany Chocolate was founded in Belize in 2016 and expanded into Panama in 2019. We set out to be a vertically integrated “seed to bean to finished product” company from day one.
There are many reasons for this, the main one being quality control. When you control the entire value chain, we can select the seeds for our nurseries, then plant and manage our farms, harvest our cacao, ferment and dry it to our specifications, and then turn it into chocolate in our factories. This way, we can ensure our customers receive only the highest quality chocolate that showcases the very best of what Belize and Panama have to offer.
In 2018 when we opened The Perfect Pair, the objective was to test our finished coffee and chocolate products on the general public. Until then, we were farmers. At The Perfect Pair, we were able to serve our products, tweak recipes, try out packaging, test flavors, serving methods, and much more. Thankfully, the feedback has been amazing, and we are now the proud owners of one of the most popular destinations in Boquete, with plans to open more venues soon.
As well a serving our delicious coffee and chocolates, visitors can learn how to cup and grade specialty coffee, make their own chocolate bar, and even arrange a tour of our farms. The Perfect Pair has become a real hub in Boquete for tourists, locals, and our Team!
