As the third wave of coffee has become more mainstream, Panama has quietly staked its claim as a force to be reckoned with thanks to growing the renowned Geisha coffee bean, which can sell for over $1,000 per pound.
Up to 45 producers and 56 types of speciality-grade coffee from 12 countries will join the first “Singapore Virtual (Micro Lot) Specialty Coffee Auction” on Thursday from 2pm to 4pm Bangkok time.
Reeders Coffee, the couple’s new online storefront, features single origin coffee beans — all grown on one farm — roasted locally in Panama City. The couple currently sells coffee from Panama, but has plans to offer coffee from Costa Rica and Burundi within the month. Flavors are unique to where the beans were grown.
“We’re extremely worried. We depend on foreign labor to pick our coffee and now we don’t know if we can count on it,” said Geovanny Rodriguez, a farmer from Santa Maria de Dota, in the mountainous Los Santos region, about 40 miles (64 km) south of the capital, San Jose.
It’s exactly like a perfect coffee commercial: a golden halo peeks over the horizon as midnight blues and then fiery reds give way to the pastel painting of a fresh morning.

It’s sunrise atop Barú Volcano, where, from Panama’s highest point, at 11,400 feet above sea level, your eyes can scan from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean with a quick swivel of the head.
