Bambito Estate Coffee has been family owned since the early 1900s. Alberto Sittón Rios acquired the farm from his father in 1945 in the mountains of Bambito, Chiriqui Province, Panama. It was Alberto's passion to continue a family tradition. Nowadays, it is still a family business, with fourth and fifth generations running the farm.
The coffee plantation is between two national forest parks and crossed by two mountain ridges from east to west, creating two natural microclimates. These ridges protect their coffee trees from the summer north winds. They also have two water springs, the primary water source for the mill.
El Bambito is committed to providing a healthy and social work environment, respectful of the land, incorporating their Social Responsibility Program, providing breakfast to the nearby elementary school students and organizing Christmas gatherings to provide food and gifts to the whole community.
