Just hiked up for an hour one afternoon, but loved the short journey up to this super serene coffee shop at the highest point of Bastimentos almost as much as we loved the chocolate there...

Hiked to wizards beach and decided to stop by on the way back to town since we heard it was good. Great coffee, truffles and brownies that's all natural and made there. They have some cool natural body and face oils/creams as well that they have there. Best coffee I had while in Bocas and great place to hang out while drinking it. Highly recommended.

It's not lightly that I say those words, but Jeanette's little place on top of Bastimentos is most definitely my favourite place for a great coffee, an amazing view, fantastic raw cacao treats and some good chat.

Jeanette and her husband own a farm up on Bastimentos and much of the raw cacao (if there's any left after I almost bought up her whole stash) comes right from their farm. The coffee, from Boquete, is not overroasted, not bitter, and doesn't give you the shakes even after a whole French press. The draw, though, are her amazing raw truffles and the warm, welcoming environment. It's not often you get to sit in a jungle paradise sipping your morning joe, and the hike up the hill to get there just makes it all the more worthwhile.

She and I are both from the UK originally, and it was fantastic to chat about the state of the world and learn a bit about what they grow on the farm. We went away with bellies full of coffee, truffles, arms full of cacao balls and freshly-grown Katuk and a huge desire to return. We'll be back.
