Think How Lucky You Are

I received a message from a Panamanian friend of mine living in California. He said he had to go all the way to Starbucks in San Francisco to get a cup of Panamanian coffee. He sent the following photo.


Think how lucky we are to have it here in our own back yard so to speak.

When you come visit the next time Jamie, I will buy you a cup in David.

  1. You got it. July, maybe? By the way, it was really good.
    I wonder if Jim and Nena find something similar in Texas.

  2. Panama coffee : What a mark up from $2.95 to 50 cents a cup here. I grow my own coffee here in Cerro Punta and get some but not alot of coffee beans as the cooler weather keeps the plants small. Nothing like fresh cup of coffee from your back yard.

  3. No more Starbucks for me.

    Starbucks CEO: If You Support Traditional Marriage, We Don’t Want Your Business

    Filed under Business, Homosexual agenda Posted on March 25, 2013

    At the Starbucks annual shareholders meeting on Wednesday, CEO Howard Schultz sent a clear message to anyone who supports traditional marriage over gay marriage: we don’t want your business. After saying Starbucks wants to “embrace diversity of all kinds,” he told a shareholder who supports traditional marriage that he should sell his shares and invest in some other company.

    According to a report by Forbes, Schultz seemed a bit intolerant of any Starbucks shareholders who opposed gay marriage for moral or religious reasons. During the meeting, shareholder Tom Strobhar (who founded the Corporate Morality Action Center) pointed out that after the company voiced its support for a referendum backing gay marriage in Washington state, a boycott by traditional marriage supporters caused a drop in sales revenue. Schultz told him “You can sell your shares in Starbucks and buy shares in another company” if he did not agree with the company’s pro-gay marriage stand.

  4. Don, I have had a couple cups of it plus we just bought a bag for home. It’s really good. It’s made with a special machine, the clover press. Only certain Starbucks have them. That’s why it might be hard to find. It’s worth it. It’s as close as we get to the good stuff you have every day.

  5. Dr. Jaime,
    We are in Panama now, headed to David-Boquete today so we will get the real thing. We bring suitcases full of clothes-stuff for the family and fill the suitcases with Duran, Ruiz, Seton, etc when we return. Gotta stock up until the next trip! haha

  6. Best coffee is right here in Panama. I love coffee and I love Panama. I love the people and the coffee.

  7. And we also have the second most expensive coffee in the world (Geisha) in Boquete…$100 a lb and it is not the famous No. 1 (poop coffee) which is even more expensive.

  8. Panama has some of the nicest people in the world too. I choose to drink Panama coffee with the best folks around and thank my lucky stars I don’t have to be around a bunch of liberals who push immorality in order to justify their own bad behavior
