Located in the Volcan Baru area of Panama between two national forest parks, Bambito Estate is crossed by two mountain ridges from East to West. These ridges protect the coffee trees from the summer north winds. The north part of the estate, has less solar exposure, more shade and humidity and consistently produces top quality coffee. This lot came from the north part of the estate. The coffee itself is comprised of Catuai, Caturra, and Typica varieties and is grown at an elevation that ranges between 1,632 and 1,821 meters above sea level. The Estate has an average temperature range of between 50 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. These slightly cooler temperatures combined with the growing elevation leads to a bean that matures more slowly and results in a harder, denser bean.
