Colombia and Panama

Panama is the most easterly and southernmost country in Central America and connects to the northwestern region of Colombia on the continent of South America. Years ago these two nations were both part of Gran Colombia with similar mountainous terrain, volcanic soil plentiful rain, forested mountains and a dry season that allows for picking and drying coffee when it is ready. Colombia is one of the world’s leading coffee exporters while Panama with its small land mass makes up in quality what it misses in amount of coffee produced. Colombia is generally acknowledged to produce some of the best coffee in the world in the region roughly demarcated by Medellin to the North, Manizales to the East and the plains around Cali to the south.
