Cafe el Tute, Santa Fe, Panama

Santa Fe is home to the locally produced coffee, Café El Tute, which is run by the local farmer’s cooperative.  At El Tute they receive coffee beans from farmers throughout the Santa Fe Area.  The co-op then process the beans, packages them, and sends them out to be sold.  The Co-op also provides local farmers with start-up funds and land assistance.

The tourism cooperative in town offers tours of a local organic coffee farm, followed by a guided tour of the coffee processing plant. Tours can be arranged by contacting the Tourism Cooperative at 954-0737.  They don’t actually process the coffee every day so make sure you’re booking your tour on a day when the coffee is actually be worked!
