"I had the privilege to visit the whole value chain organized by AgroNosotros of top-grade specialty coffee just a couple of days ago. First, I would like to thank and congratulate Andres Lopez, a real expert and excellent practitioner of coffee production and farm management.
The trip was organized in a manner so that we could see production, processing, marketing, and consumption. Hence, the entire value chain. Another value add was to be in a small group with a Canadian couple Silvi and Frank. To be in a group balances the different questions and interests and all can benefit.
I am very much convinced that investors add value not only in an economic sense but also in regard to social and ecological parameters. I was very much impressed by how the company balances aspects of ecology, society and economy.
Furthermore, I appreciate very much that our Company invests in people and provides fair remuneration, good housing, and education for the children. All this is very important for me as a "social investor".
The trip was very well organized and highly informative. Many thanks to Darren, Andres and Daniele."
Hike around your first coffee farm, Finca 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.
The very first farm we acquired back in January 2015, and where the coffee 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 and laboratory, 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 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 worker 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.
For years we have hosted separate coffee and cacao tours, Coffee in Panama and Cacao in Belize, where we have 5 farms, post harvest facilities and one of our factories.
Now with the addition of 61.5 hectares of prime farmland in Chiriqui Grande, we are developing our first cacao farm here in Panama. We built our own on-site nursery, the farm is now 100% planted, and over the next year or so as we approach production, we will build the post harvest facilities on the farms as well.
The new Panama chocolate factory is already up and running in Boquete so now you can tour the cacao farms and coffee farms in one trip, and follow the entire process from seed to bean to finished product.
Our specialty coffee and chocolate shop,The Perfect Pair, is fast becoming the heart and HQ for our group of companies. This is where coffee and chocolate meet, as well as our Team! You will often find the accounting team meeting the farm management team, or marketing meeting the factory team. All over excellent coffee and some decadent hot chocolate.
In a real 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
Located in The Perfect Pair is our newly built chocolate making factory, so now you will also learn how chocolate is made, from the fermented and dried cacao bean, all the way through to the finished chocolate bars. And, you will even get to make your own chocolate bars to take home to your family.
From the time you arrive in David, you are our guests. We are happy to provide all breakfast, lunch and evening meals as well as refreshments, evening entertainment and ground transportation during the tour.
