“What makes our coffee so good”

Great coffee requires many different and equally important ingredients.

From the location of the coffee farm to the exacting roasting process, great tasting coffee is our passion. There are a number of important ingredients that go into a great cup of coffee.



Our coffee is grown on the slopes of Volcan Baru, in the Chiriqui Highlands of Panama. This region is world renowned for the coffee grown here. The altitude, temperature, rain and sunlight all come together to create the perfect growing environment for a robust flovorable coffee bean. The area’s coffee is known for its exquisite aromas and flavors containing fruited and floral notes and has earned the reputation to be some of the world’s best.

Pesticide Free

We support farms that produce shade grown, pesticide-free coffee that provide bird and wildlife friendly environments.




At Panama Joe, we only buy directly from the farmer. This helps to enhance social sustainability. The coffee is hand-picked (not by machine) to ensure the highst quality.

Hand Roasted to Perfection

Coffee Roasting is the process that transforms the chemical and physical properties of green coffee beans into roasted coffee.  We generally roast light to medium to extenuate the the distinct nuances of particular estates and to satisfy individual preferences.  

During the later stages of roasting, oils will appear on the bean’s surface giving darker roasts a shiny appearance. Few if any of the “origin flavor” (the flavors distinct to the varietals, altitude, soil and weather conditions of the individual growing region) are retained at the darker stages of roasting.  These origin flavors are eclipsed by the flavors of the roasting process itself.  Other coffee’s are generally roasted dark, this provides consistency and masks defects in the beans at the price of flavor and quality.
