Don Pepe Estate 

A family farm that has been operating since 1898. Four generations of the Vásquez have farmed in the foothills of Volcán Barú in an area called ​ Volcancito. This is in the famous coffee growing area of Boquete, Chiriquí, well known for its gorgeous coffees. The farm is at an altitude of 1500 to 2000 meters above sea level with 70 hectares of land. 59 of these are coffee, 11 dedicated to a natural reserve.

Tony Vásquez [Don Tony] put the estate on the world coffee map with his outstanding Gesha coffees and is recognised for his tireless hard work and vision in driving quality not just with his estate but for Panamanian coffee in general. Sadly, Don Tony passed away in 2016 but his drive and focus is continued by the Vásquez family.
