Our coffee is grown in the mountains of northern Panama in rich volcanic soil that allows the coffee to thrive. Hard-bean Arabica Typica and Arabica Geisha are picked by hand and dried outdoors. This eco-friendly method imparts a lush creaminess to the coffee. The coffee beans are then gently roasted using computer-controlled roasting equipment.
While the high altitudes in many of these developing countries are ideal for producing great coffee, it’s a source of systemic poverty in many areas. At Mission Coffee, we purchase direct from farmers at retail prices rather than wholesale, and then resell in the United States, providing an immediate contribution on the front end. We maintain relationships with growers, investing in their community while still providing the highest-caliber coffee available.
