Roberto Brenes, the producer of Finca Auromar coffees Camilina Geisha Natural and Ironmar Washed Geisha, is a very proud coffee farmer in the Volcan region of Panama.
Roberto is also so much more than just a coffee farmer.
As the former Head of the Panama Stock Exchange, he has had a long career in investment banking and has competed in a number of Triathalons in different parts of the world. As impressive as that is, his post-college years after earning his MBA degree from Columbia University in New York is what set him on a path as a leader in Panama.
Many years ago when Panama was under the dictatorial rule of Manuel Noriega, young Brenes was an outspoken critic of the then dictator. This outspoken style led to his exile from Panama for a number of years. During this time Brenes advanced his banking career in South America.
When Noriega was finally captured and sent to prison, He returned to Panama to take on the task of rebuilding Panamas economy as the Central Banker.
The fact that he was exiled was now worn as a badge of honor when he was able to return and help his country. Panama is now considered a jewel of South America, sometimes referred to as the Switzerland or Dubai of Latin America.
His Geisha coffee is equally a jewel in Panama and a consistent Winner in the Best of Panama. Bird Rock co-owner Jeff and Maritza Taylor have been buying his coffee and working closely with Brenes to give feedback and input on the quality of the cup. He plans to make coffee farming a passion in his retirement and we look forward to offering his coffee for years to come.
