Baru Black Mountain is located in the north of Panama, in the province of Chiriqui and close to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed “La Amistad” National Park.
After having had a successful professional career in Spain, Pedro Rodriguez Escribano decided to invest in Panama where he bought a cattle farm … and coffee.
Initially, he wanted to make a living from his cattle production, but that was without counting on the meeting of his daughter and her future husband, a German passionate about coffee, who pushed him to develop his coffee production.
For 10 years, Pedro has fully invested in his coffee farm and is constantly learning and improving his production methods. This involves in particular the diversification of its varieties which allow it to obtain very good quality coffees.
On site, it is Ezequiel Batista, who is the manager and administrator of Baru Black Mountain. He manages relations with producers, processing and harvests and he conveys the importance of good agronomic and post-harvest management, the conservation of biodiversity and the well-being of their collaborators.
It's MB's first ever coffee from Panama - we're super excited and hope you enjoy!
