Coffee first came to Panama with the European settlers in the early 20th century. Several microclimates exist throughout the country, creating excellent  conditions for growing coffee. Then as now, Panamanians mainly grow Arabica coffee. The Boquete region is probably best known for its high-quality coffees.  However, other regions in the country also produce excellent qualities and deserve the attention of coffee lovers. Bordering Costa Rica, the Candela  region has much of Panama‘s food and some fantastic coffees. In the Candela region, close to the Baru volcano, this coffee is produced by several farms belonging to the Gallardo family: Finca La Santa, Finca Zambrano, Finca Santa Clara, and Jurutungo. The Gallardo family farms are well known for their  high-quality coffee since 1960. Today, they are one of the largest coffee growers in Panama. The Gallardos can monitor and control the whole production process: from the selective cherry-picking through the washing process until the parchment‘s drying. Everyone in the Gallardo family works hard to obtain  the highest possible quality. You can even taste this passion in the cup: A pleasant, light citric acidity meets dark chocolate notes. The coffee has a smooth  mouthfeel and is overall balanced. mouthfeel and is overall balanced.
