Panama San Sebastian comes from a family farm in Horqueta, Los Naranjos, Boquete. It’s run by Domingo Suárez, a third-generation coffee producer, and neighbors the farms of Domingo’s siblings Eira and Norberto, who run Finca Hortigal and La Gloria, respectively.
San Sebastian Estate is 19-plus hectares and has views of Volcán Barú—an active stratovolcano and the highest mountain in Panama.
The farm has been applying a methodical regime of high-quality fertilizer to nurture soil health and increase farm outputs, and the land — which includes a rich assortment of bird-attracting shade trees — is lush and thriving.
This coffee is picked by hand, washed, and dried on patios as well as in machines for consistency.
Cupping notes: Hibiscus, orange blossom, caramel; juicy, floral and sweet.
