Starbucks Reserve® Panama Los Cantares
Founded in 1929, the Los Cantares Estate was among the first to export coffee from Panama's remote Volcán growing region. For 18 years, current owner Marie Jackie Mercer Vallarino has nurtured the business by caring for the land and its workers.
Abundant water from the adjoining Chiriquí Viejo River, rich soil and plentiful shade trees contribute to a memorable coffee with delicate body and bright acidity. The estate has won multiple Best of Panama awards, and one taste of this coffee proves why.
Of the thousands of coffees we encounter in our search for the best, only a precious few are deemed exceptional enough to become Starbucks Reserve® coffees, offered only for limited times at select stores.
