Coffee culture is a big deal in Panama. And thanks to geisha-bean production in the highlands of Chiriquí (the province that borders Costa Rica
), local coffees are some of the most sought-after in the world. Try them at Café Unido, where they buy carefully selected coffee beans directly from sustainable plantations. The beans are roasted by hand and prepared with painstaking expertise. You’ll also find food at all five branches. There’s one in the Casco Viejo, one on the ground floor of the American Trade Hotel, and another in the Multiplaza mall, down Luxury Avenue.
