Baru Black Mountain is located in northern Panama, in the Chiriqui Province and near the La Amistad International Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Standing 3,800 metres above sea level, Volcan Baru overlooks the national parkand marks the country’s highest point.
The farm is named after the region’s very dark volcanic soil. It is situated to the West of the volcano, at an altitude of between 1,350 and 1,500 metres, midway between the cities of Volcan and Rio Sereno. It is an ideal environment for growing coffee. In addition to its mineral-rich soil, streams and century-old trees, which provide natural shade, it benefits from perfect weather conditions, all of which optimise production.
The Baru Black Mountain farm is not only committed to environmentally-friendly farming practices, by using stream waterto wash its harvested cherries for example, but also respects its workers, who receive medical and educational support for their families.
