"I can't Belize what a Panama Honduras you're being."

For a pair of farmers, vegetarians and locavores, we lived the dream for two days in Boquete where we drank local coffee, ate farm-fresh fruit and enjoyed a beautiful countryside.

On our first day, we toured a beautiful coffee plantation named Finca La Meligrosa (Miracle Farm).

There, we learned about the entire coffee process;

 From saplings to harvest...




and of course, tasting!

Finca La Meligrosa  is also one of the few farms in Panama with the conditions suitable to grow the rare- and utterly expensive- Geisha coffee.  After tasting the sweet berry, we learned the nature of this finicky variety which only grows above 1,400 meters and goes for an astounding $9 per cup and $280 per pound.

On our second day, we visted the lovely Mi Jardin es Su Jardin, a beautiful private estate surrounded by a garden that couldn't help but be shared.

Boquete was beautiful and we really enjoyed it

P.S. We rented a scooter!
