Delivery Schedule – June Delivery Update

Jenni and I will be heading to Panama and Costa Rica in June.  This will change the delivery date slightly for the second June delivery.  We will deliver the coffee as usual on June 2nd; however the second delivery for the month will be on Friday, June 13th (instead of Monday, June 16th).  See below for the delivery schedule, and please contact if you have a conflict with this.

                                 

Also, remember that our usual delivery schedule is the first and third Mondays of the month.  June has 5 Mondays this year, so there will be an extra week before the first July delivery.

Panama & OCCR Trip

Due to the excellent marketing of its neighbor to the South (Colombia) and the popularity and stability of its neighbor to the North (Costa Rica), Panama is often overlooked and underrated by most North American coffee drinkers.  However, those in the industry know that Panama produces some of, if not the best coffees available in the world, and the word is beginning to spread.

 

On May 22, Panama held its annual Esmeralda Special Auction; some micro-lots fetched a price of $105 per pound (Remember that’s green coffee price, not roasted)!  Panama’s farms offer many other excellent and reasonably priced coffees as well.

 

In June, Jenni and I will be visiting some farms throughout Panama and Costa Rica (and checking out the scenery between visits).  We look forward to a highly educational and beautiful trip to a hidden treasure in the coffee world.  We hope to add a Panama coffee offering in the near future, too.  So, look for that and we’ll update you on the trip when we return.
