This natural processed Geisha comes from the Kotowa farm in Panama.
The Kotowa farm, in its third generation, has several outstanding plots of land; this particular lot is from a portion of the farm called Las Brujas. We have had the pleasure of visiting Kotowa's farms, their old wetmill and their wonderful home, overlooking the beautiful Boquete mountainside and the Baru Volcano. Ricardo Koyner owns coffee shops too, located throughout Panama City and elsewhere in Panama, so much of Kotowa's production is used at home, reducing exportable quantities. In 2016 Cafe Kotowa was awarded the 3rd edition of the Best Producer Panama Cup which recognizes the producer whose coffees make it to the final round of each category in the Best of Panama competition.
In 2006, The National Environmental Agency presented Kotowa Coffee as the winner of The Panama National Award for "The Years Environmentally Cleanest Industry". They provide free medical attention for their workers, and for the children they have a nursery with meals and a school program. Kotowa's social programs for the children and families producing this great coffee has earned them recognition from UNICEF nine years in a row.
