In the coffee industry, coffee auction is a very important activity. Coffee auctions are usually held at the same time as regional or national coffee events, and the winning coffee can be sold directly at the auction. On the other hand, coffee auction can cause people to bid for high-quality coffee at a high price, improve people's understanding of the origin, variety and treatment of coffee, and at the same time provide a wider market outlet for farmers and improve income efficiency. and then encourage the production of high-quality coffee. At present, BOP and COE are the two most famous and successful in the coffee industry.

The full name of BOP is Best Of Panama, also known as Best Panama. The auction platform is designed and organized by the Panamanian Coffee Association (SCAP), while SCAP is a Panamanian association of non-profit coffee growers / processors.

BOP development

Until 1989, coffee prices were controlled by the International Coffee Agreement. But the system collapsed in 1989, causing coffee prices to plummet. In Panama, under such circumstances, the coffee market has also collapsed. at such a low price, no one in Panama can continue to operate at this low price, so there is an urgent need for a new solution. So Panama decided to try boutique coffee and established the Panamanian boutique coffee association SCAP in the early 1990s. And launched the first Best Panama (BOP) in 1996. In 2002, at the second BOP auction, the award-winning coffee sold for $2.37 per pound, which was already five times the price on the world market. The auction brought Panamanian producers into more contact with the international community.

Walken producing area (Volc á n)

When it comes to Panamanian coffee cultivation, many people will think of the Poquet area, but in recent years, there are good estates in the Walken region that often appear on BOP. The Walken producing area, which is 1200-1600 meters above sea level, has less rainfall than Poquet, but the geographical environment to the west of the Baru volcano gives the coffee produced in the area a strong dried fruit flavor and a sweeter aroma. There are also many well-known estates in the Walken area, such as Finca Hartmann.

Hartman Manor (Finca Hartmann)

Hartman Manor, founded in 1940, can be said to be the forerunner of the development of Walken Coffee production area. The estate has 500 hectares of land, but still retains most of the virgin forest. The coffee planting land in the manor accounts for only about 20% of the whole manor. due to the results of woodland conservation, there are quite a lot of native birds in the manor, and the most famous big-billed bird in the area has naturally become the standard Logo of the manor. Built in the Balu volcanic area, the manor has nutrient-rich volcanic soil and towering primeval forests provide the best shade for planting, so the coffee produced has a higher sweetness and brighter acidity. The manor grows many kinds of beans, such as iron pickup, Kaddura, bourbon, rose summer and so on.

Of course, Qianjie Coffee also bought the Rose Summer Coffee beans from Hartman Manor, and the Rose Summer Coffee beans from Qianjie Coffee were treated by anaerobic sun treatment. Qianjie Coffee can be brewed with V60Graver 15, you can smell elegant white flowers, the entrance will have bergamot, pineapple and blueberry flavor, the level is changeable, as the temperature drops slightly, it will show an Earl Grey Tea-like taste and a long finish.
