Tuesday, May 29, 2018
The Panama Canal Authority inaugurated its first robusta coffee processing plant, on Monday as part of an environmental program seeking to conserve its watershed and empower local coffee growers.
Canal administrator Jorge Luis Quijano, said that until now the farmers of the Canal basin had to grind and roast their beans in the city of Santiago, more than three hours from their farms, and with this plant, they will save on costs and time.
