fincaziska

As a token of appreciation, we have sent some of our craft beer back to Finca Ziska Panama and they are loving it! A few months ago, we have partnered with a local craft beer brewer and we made some specialty beer with some high quality Panama specialty coffee. It’s always cool to be able to send our gratitude to the farmers who produced these wonderful coffee. Fruitbomb is one of our personal favorite and it seems our customers agree with us too. Thanks for the long hard work, we will treasure your effort and this connection. It’s a blessing to be able to enjoy these great coffee! Enjoy the beer we made with your coffee.
