One of life's most surprising pleasures is to taste the difference between an excellent coffee and an extraordinary one. As with fine wine, the profound complexity of coffee involves over a thousand flavor constituents that define its aroma, character and finish.
In 1945, Alberto Sitton Rios acquired a farm in the mountains of Bambito, Chiriqui Province, Panama. The farm in Bambito represents Alberto Rios's passion and his commitment to continue a legendary family tradition. Much of what makes Bambito Estates one of the best coffee producers in Panama is its near-perfect climate for coffee cultivation. Located near Volcan Baru (an inactive volcano and Panama's highest point) and in between two national forest parks in Chiquiri Province, Bambito Estate's coffee is comprised of three coffee varietals (50% catuai, 45% caturra, and 5% typica) and is grown at an elevation that ranges between 5,350 and 6,000 feet (1600-1800 meters) above sea level. The combination of varietals gives this coffee the rich, full body associated with Central American coffees.
Bambito Estate is also keenly aware of their social responsibility to the community. They are actively involved in several benevolent programs to benefit their community. Bambito Estate coffees are the perfect blend of ideal geography, technological innovation, and social/environmental responsibility--resulting in outstanding coffees.
