Coffee producers to grind and toast beans directly in Canal basin

Agriculture

The goal of marketing a coffee bean of the robusta variety under the Cuencafé brand is near for the members of the Association of Coffee Growers of the Ciri Grande and Trinidad Rivers Sub-basin of the Panama Canal (Acacpa) .

This seal seeks to certify the qualities of the robust variety, produced within the Environmental Economic Incentives Program (PIEA) , advanced by the Panama Canal Authority (ACP) for five years.

About 1,300 producers in the communities near the sub-basin of the Ciri and Trinidad rivers, in the district of Capira, cultivate 2 thousand 300 hectares of improved robusta coffee.

This production was sent to Veraguas for processing, but as of this week in Las Gaitas de Capira, the coffee growers plant in the basin started operations.

At a cost of 50 thousand dollars, the coffee processing plant was built. Members of Acacpa will be able to toast, grind and pack the robust grain grown in the lands surrounding the Canal basin, said Jorge Luis Quijano , administrator of the ACP.

The infrastructure is the result of the joint effort of State institutions such as the Ministry of Agricultural Development, non-governmental organizations such as the Natura Foundation, financial and international cooperation organizations such as the MIF-IDB and the Latin American Development Bank- CAF, Manzanillo International Terminal (port of Manzanillo, in Colón) and Ricardo Pérez, SA
