Panama is one of the smallest coffee growing regions but its unique coffees have become a necessity to all specialty coffee roasters of the world.
A coffee roaster seeking certain coffee beans to enhance his signature blends enjoys one of the best perks of purchasing green coffee beans. It is ‘direct farm relations’.
