Chiriquí Highlands Coffee

Some of the best coffee in the world comes from the volcanic soil of Panama, Chiriquí highlands coffee. Coffee from the region around Boquete and Volcan, Panama produces awarding winning regular coffee and healthy organic coffee as well. Chiriquí is the largest province in Panama and its leading agricultural producer. From the coastal lowlands to the base of the Cordillera Central Panama grows tomatoes and corn, onions and lettuce. It raises cattle, chickens, and pigs. And, in the rich volcanic soil of the Chiriquí Highlands coffee plants grow in the shade of natural forests and rows of plantain interspersed between rows of coffee plants. The highest point in the central spine of mountains in Panama is Volcán Barú.

This 11,398 foot volcano last erupted significantly around 500 AD. It relieved itself of a mountain side worth of material, throwing boulders and rocks tens of miles. The resulting volcanic ash provided a fertile location for the luxurious plant growth that coffee planters found when they arrived at the end of the 19th century.

Although coffee is grown throughout the highland of Panama, Chiriquí highlands coffee from the flanks of Volcán Barú is famous for its flavor and aroma. The Caldera and Chiriquí Rivers drain the watershed of the dormant volcano. In the rainy season sportsmen brave Class IV rapids on the Little Chiriquí. The Western flank of the mountain hosts Volcan and the village of Cerro Punta. The eastern flank hosts the expat mecca of Boquete. Coffee farms dot this region, interspersed between natural forests, other crop lands, and pastures where cattle and horses graze. Much of the coffee grown in this region has traditionally been grown using sustainable, organic practices. It only requires organic coffee certification for these growers to have a product that passes organic standard for sale in Europe, the USA, or Japan.

A Latin American agency headquartered in Lima, Peru has certified a large number of Chiriquí highland coffee producers. Bio Latina certifies agricultural products and processes throughout Latin America.

They certify on behalf of agencies across the globe. With Bio Latina organic coffee certification Chiriquí highlands coffee producers can sell their products in the USA, Europe, and Japan. They also certify for companies such as Starbucks. In order for these coffee growers and processors to pass certification they must refrain from the use of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and excessive synthetic fertilizer. They must also refrain from using the same storage and shipping facilities as are used for non-organic coffee.

For anyone seeking a reliable source of high quality wholesale coffee or wholesale organic coffee, the Chiriquí highlands coffee is a good choice.
