Panamanian coffee is well known in the global coffee market, especially the rose summer variety. Rosa rose rose to fame because of its excellent flavor and results after passing the best Panama competition and auction in 2005. Therefore, in the impression of many people, Panamanian coffee is mainly planted in Rosa, in fact, other coffee varieties will be grown in Panama.

Panama Panama

Panama is located in the south of Central America, with an S-shaped territory connecting Costa Rica and Colombia, the Caribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Because the country connects North and South America, and the domestic Panama Canal connects the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, it is known as the "bridge of the world". Panama has undulating terrain and vertical valleys. Apart from the plains along the coast, it is mostly mountainous, and it is rich in forest and river resources, as well as a number of volcanoes, giving coffee trees ideal conditions for planting.

Panama is close to the equator and has a tropical maritime climate. It is humid during the day and cool at night. The annual average temperature is between 23 ℃ and 27 ℃, and the annual average rainfall is 1500-2500 mm. Under the influence of geographical environment, Panama has a complex and changeable microclimate. The environment from east to west allows cold air to flow through the Central Mountains and converge at more than 1900 meters, thus forming a very unique microclimate in the Boquete and Volc á n Candela areas, and the land around this area is rich in volcanic ash. These fertile soils provide perfect conditions for the growth of coffee. Making it a major producer of Panamanian coffee.

Poquet Boquete

Coffee producing areas are mainly divided into Boquete, Volcan-Candela and Renacimiento. These producing areas are located around the country's three volcanoes: Volc á n Baru of Baru, El Valle of Erbaye and Le Yeguada of Rajaguada.

Pokuit is arguably the most famous coffee producing area in Panama, because it has many well-known estates, such as Emerald Manor, Duncan Manor and Arida Manor. Its main Bokui special area has excellent conditions for growing coffee. Coffee is grown at an altitude of 1200-2000 meters, where the temperature is between 11 ℃ and 27 ℃, which is not too cold or too hot. At the same time, a large temperature difference can make the coffee fruit grow slowly and develop its flavor. In addition, there is an appropriate amount of rainfall, fertile land brought by volcanic ash, ample sunshine and special local microclimate. So that the producing area can produce high-quality coffee.

Alida Elida

Alida Manor has a total area of 65 hectares, more than half of which is within the Baru Volcano National Park. Only 30 hectares of the estate is used to grow coffee trees, and the rest is virgin forest. Coffee is grown at an altitude of 1670-1850 meters, making it one of the two highest coffee farms in Panama. At such a high altitude, low temperatures can delay the ripening of coffee berries, while fertile volcanic soil provides sufficient nutrients, coupled with the region's unique microclimate, Arida Manor has achieved success on BOP many times.

On the other hand, Arida Manor uses hand-picked the most ripe berries, because of the high maturity of the fruit, the sugar content of pectin is also higher, and the processing plant of Arida Manor is just halfway up the hill, so it can be transported to the factory for processing as soon as the coffee is collected to ensure the quality of coffee berries. At present, Kaduai, iron pickup and rose summer varieties are mainly planted in Arida Manor.

Kaduai Catuai

The Kadou Catuai variety is produced by the Sao Paulo Institute of Agronomy (IAC) in Campinas, Brazil, and is a hybrid between New World Mundo Novo and Kaddura Caturra. On the Kaduai coffee plant, similar to Kaddura, the branches are smaller, the leaves are green and slightly curly, the fruits are closely intertwined, the fruit is mainly red, and the coffee beans are oval in size, but smaller than Kaddura. The overall tree shape is smaller, so it can be planted densely. The yield is good, so it is suitable for planting at high altitude, but it is vulnerable to leaf rust, nematode and berry disease. it is mainly cultivated in Brazil, Honduras, Guatemala and other countries.
