Coffee grown in the Panama Canal watershed is gaining notoriety among coffee specialists.
Cuencafé, produced by the Asociación de Caficultores de la Sub cuenca de los Ríos Cirí Grande y Trinidad del Canal de Panamá (ACACPA), is the guest coffee this October at the @tonoscafebakery.
This meeting, sponsored by @lacosechapanama, is an achievement of the Environmental Incentives Program that seeks to protect the forest cover of the Canal watershed through conservation and sustainability strategies.
Reforestation with robusta coffee is part of this environmental strategy with more than 13 years of experience.
The objective of this cup of smoky and chocolatey aromas is to protect the water that half of Panama’s population drinks and sustains the transit of ships.
Elza Martinez, president of ACACPA, expressed the satisfaction they feel when showing their product because “we are aware that by cultivating our coffee we help to conserve Panama’s water resources” and highlighted the effort they make to invest in the quality of their beans and thus enrich the international profile of Panamanian coffee.
For his part, Jorge Chanis, director of La Cosecha, stated that achieving these connections “is like making homeland”.
The presentation of Cuencafé was attended by journalists and specialists of the Panamanian coffee world.
