About this coffee

CCD is a forward-looking Specialty Coffee producer at the Chiriquí province in Boquete, Panama. By transforming a traditional wet mill and drying patio into a modern state-of-the-art processing facility, CCD integrates art and specialty coffee in a unique and authentic space where artists are promoted and celebrated to inspire industry participants around the globe to support and demand new coffee production standards that guarantee higher incomes for growers and sustainable ecological practices for processing stations worldwide.
Coffee growers at Panama rarely get to process their coffee cherries in the way that the specialty coffee industry requires. At CCD, we are creating a community with those coffee growers committed to maintaining sustainable crops to buy their coffee cherries and process them at our station. With our state-of-the-art facilities and our innovative processing methods, we will challenge the status quo by changing the way that coffee farmers have used to grow, process, and market coffee.
Inspired by the Neighbours & Crops coffee model of LA PALMA & EL TUCAN in Colombia, we have established cooperating relationships with coffee producers in Hornito, Renacimiento, and Boquete. By controlling every step of the process, we are willing to push the limits and guarantee exceptional coffee profiles for Panama coffees.
The farms we work with are located at an altitude range between 1.300 and 1.800 m.a.s.l.
For this process “Intrinsic Cherry Process” they ferment the cherry in the very same bag they come in, It is in this way there process maintains the essence of each micro-lot. The bacteria and yeast strains are unique and vary in each batch, and by involving them in the fermentation they let the essence of the cherry shine. They open the fermentation enviroment to the air and allow nature to guide the temperature which averages at 30 degress celcius. In this case they keep an eye out to keep temperatures below 45 degrees celcius to prevent the cherries from overheating. They keep the fermentation times between 12 to 72 hours because the soaring temperatures of there natural enviroment result in drastic changes of the cherry cell structure and rapid embryo death, completely changing the cup profile which this particular lot being fermenting for 47 hours.
Welcome to a journey towards inspiration, collaboration and change.
This one is true to the description. Some really beautiful citrus moments. Raisins are there too. Brown sugar is more on the subtle side and pay close attention to capture that white floral. It’s not easy to discern straight up, but once you’ve registered it, it’s extremely impressive.
