This coffee is produced at the Baru Black Mountain farm, situated at an altitude of between 1,350 and 1,500 metres in Chiriqui Province. It benefits from ideal production conditions, in terms of both its environment and climate. Grown in mineral-rich volcanic soil under natural shade, the cherries are harvested selectively by hand and dried by dehydration using a system of African beds placed inside an oven. An innovative preparation technique that gives this well-balanced and aromatically complex coffee its characteristic sweetness.
Pedro Rodriguez Escribano used to be an entrepreneur in the printing industry. After selling his company in Spain, he moved to Panama where he bought a cattle and coffee farm. He initially intended to make a living from beef production, but that was before his daughter met her future husband, a German coffee enthusiast who encouraged him to develop his coffee business.
For the past 10 years, Pedro has worked flat out at his coffee farm, continuously learning and improving his production techniques. He has also diversified his varieties, as a result of which he can now produce coffees of a particularly high quality.
