We are ready to share with the world our unique coffee lots!

As part of this great experience, SCAP is honored to receive our national judges and our prestigious international jury from different parts of the world. We are pleased for their effort to participate and discover the best specialty coffee lots produced in the Highlands of Panama.

Our national cupping sessions will take place from May 22nd to the 27th, and our international cupping sessions will be celebrated from May 30th to the 3rd of June in Boquete, Chiriqui.

The Board of Directors of the Specialty Coffee Association of Panama

Commitment to

The Specialty Coffee Association of Panama (SCAP) in a non-profit organization created to promote Panama’s special coffee production in the world. Our members share a passion for coffee and a strong commitment with the pursue of ultimate quality.

Our coffees have been ranked by experts as some of the best in the world in many international competitions, and our production is highly prized by the most demanding and discerning in the industry.

The parallel between specialty coffee and wine is often drawn to illustrate coffee’s complexity and how nuanced variables from terroir to roasting curve influence the final flavour. The parallel also applies to the establishment of branding. Today’s coffee farms are building the kind of name recognition vineyards use to sell premiere vintages of wine.

Our farms are located in the Highlands of Chiriqui, Panama, near the border with Costa Rica and at a 7 hours drive from Panama City and its Canal. Chiriqui is one of the most productive provinces in Panama because of its climate and fertile soil and is considered the breadbasket of Panama.
