Who we are
Panama Varietals is a direct trade specialty coffee merchant with a base in Boquete, Panama and Linz, Austria. We are coffee sourcers and enthusiasts. Our goal is to source the finest, most interesting green beans for our partners while creating trusting, long lasting relationships with our farmers and community.
To truly be conscious of our coffees and how they are grown, harvested, and processed we believe a full-time presence on the ground, where our coffee is sourced, is critical. It allows us to monitor progress, interact with growers, and fortify our relationships on a continuous basis. Instead of visiting our farmers once or twice a year we walk hand in hand with those we choose to work with.
Panama has some of the finest coffees the world has to offer and the world deserves to experience what we experience everyday – excellence in a cup. It is a small country, yet has big coffees that have changed the coffee world’s perspective, for the better. Additionally, Panama has very creative and visionary farmers who are interested in new and interesting methods of growing, processing, and delivering their coffees.
