Aromas of fruity jam
Light roasting for gentle methods
Bearing the same name as its owner Don Miguel, this farm is located in the high mountains in the village of Cotito, Chiriqui region in Panama. The average farm is located at an altitude of 1850 meters.
The coffee trees are young and are therefore in their best years of production. Most coffee trees are of the catuai variety, but Don Miguel also has small batches of geisha and pacamara.
To reach the farm it takes 2 hours of rocky and muddy roads from the main road.
What is specialty coffee?
Specialty coffee is a high-end coffee known as “rare”, with unique characteristics in the world. It is cultivated in the highest altitudes of the world, in family plantations whose objective is the superior quality, signed by a manual harvest in order to guarantee the perfection of the grain. The terroir coffees are carefully sourced for the care taken by the producer, a superior manual and selective harvest, full traceability, a cultivation method and a respected and controlled treatment process.
What is the Score?

SCA determines the value of odor, aroma, body, acidity, possible blemishes. A coffee is rated on a scale of 100, and must obtain a minimum score of 80 points to be able to be determined as "specialty coffee".
