Panama Candela Estate

Panama Candela Estate

Candela Estate is located in Santa Clara in the Renacimiento region, near La Amistrad International Park. Spanning over 100 hectares, this group of family-owned farms produces high quality coffee and in recent times has diversified to grow a combination of Caturra, Catuai, Typica, Bourbon and Geisha varietals.
The history of coffee in this area dates back to the 1940’s when a few of the coffee produces from neighbouring Boquete and Volcan regions decided to start buying farms and planting them with Typica coffees. Given that the location was close to Costa Rica, it was easy for the farmers to obtain more exotic varietals over the border, and from the 1960’s onwards the farmers started introducing and cultivating new types.
In contemporary Panama, coffee is primarily produced by smallholders from two main indigenous groups; the Bugle and Ngobe people, as well as mid and large scale estates owned privately. Today, Candela Estate is the largest producer of coffee in Panama.
