PANAMA BOQUETE KOTOWA MANDARINA TRADITIONAL WASHED SHB EP
Mandarina is the original of five farms owned and operated by Kotowa Coffee. Kotowa, whose name translates to “mountains” in the local Chiriqui language, was first established at Mandarina in the early 1900s by Alexander Duncan MacIntyre, a Canadian emigrant who fell in love with the Boquete region and people after traveling there for the first time. Now, four generations later, his family is still cultivating and processing coffee the same way as Alexander did, becoming nationally recognized during Panama’s specialty movement for quality processing and variety separation. In 2018, Duncan, one of the Kotowa Coffee farms, won the Best of Panama competition for its pacamara submission.
