The World’s Most Expensive Coffee — Exploring Panama Geisha Coffee Plantations

Published at BaseNotes by Vitruvi in September 2019, my article on the vibrant, rare coffee plantations of Panama.

Beyond 2020, La Cosecha will begin offering coffee plantation tours around the mountains of Panama. Jorge Chanis formed La Cosecha to educate on Panama’s coffee riches, hosting press and trade tours around the region, which they plan to eventually launch for the public.

Akin to traveling a wine region, they pair coffee tastings with food from the country’s most celebrated chefs, like Mario Castrellon of World’s 50 Best Restaurants-awarded Maito or Andrés Morataya of NY Times-celebrated Panga. La Cosecha is also filming a coffee documentary called LAYERS to be released in 2020.
