I understand how working with less than ideal coffee can be challenging. I'm sure that the expectations in a culture that has not developed a strong desire for espresso can be dually frustrating. I talked to some adventure outfitters in the visitor's plaza that said that most people don't make much in wages and, as a result, have less motivation to really invest in their work. I would really love to come down if you ever have one of those barista events again. I am willing to pay my own way and spend some time investing into local baristas; all i'd want in return is a chance to tour some farms and get a better view of the early stages of coffee. keep me posted if anything ever comes up again.

Thanks for your efforts in trying to get me to your farm. Unfortunately I was unable to find the time given our short trip to visit, so please extend my apologies to your father on behalf of me. I greatly intend on coming back, and if the opportunity arises, to be able to do some hands on training with local baristas. while I fully believe in the unbelievable quality of the Boquete coffee community, there seems to be a disconnection between that and the cafes I visited. what are your thought?

I've been doing a little more solid research on our travel arrangements. We are flying in to PTY (Panama City) Thursday the 9th. We are going to spend the day there. We are then going to fly out to David early the next morning and catch a bus/taxi to Boquete. We will be there that day and maybe the next. We are then going to Bocas Del Toro, then back to Panama City and home from there. I know your family is busy with life and it's fine if things are too hectic for you, but in the off chance that someone is free, it would be an honor to tour the farm. Thanks again for helping with some perspective.

I appreciate all the information and it's very helpful to get some realistic time frames in line with trying to travel to the mountains. I am still not totally sure of the hotel accommodations, but our good friends mentioned she had vouchers that she could redeem in Panama. We realized that it was in the middle of rainy season, but we also knew that it might be the only time we could afford round trip tickets for two people (we're trying to pay off college loans and such), so we invested a little in some nice rain coats and expected to live in a deluge for a chunk of the trip. I wouldn't want to impose on your family in the middle of such an important time with your brother, but I really appreciate your efforts to accommodate me despite my untimeliness. I will continue to research our total plan to make sure to make the best of our time there. It seems that Panama has much to offer; we just wanted to get in as much as possible within reason. Thanks again for your time and effort.

I am going to be in Panama from October 9-16. I was wondering if your farm does tours and what I might do to get see the source of the most coveted coffee in the world ?!?!~?

Congratulations on pulling off a fantastic private auction! I'm anxious to to see if you do it again next year. Regardless, nice job getting a record number of online visitors and continuing to raise the awareness. Best of luck.
