Roberto Brenes P. | Owner
Born and raised in the province of Chiriquí, the heartland of specialty coffees in Panama, Roberto has pursued a long career in business in Panama city and abroad. Presently, he is the CEO of Panama’s Stock Exchange. But his roots remained in Chiriquí. Eight years ago he decided to pursue a lifelong interest: a first class coffee farm in the highlands of his beloved province.
“Auromar” is his idea-in the-making that combines his business experience with everyday lessons of the complex, – yet beautiful-, science of coffee cultivation . “A good coffee farm is the equivalent of a vineyard in the tropics, and I’d like to produce the “Grand Cru” of coffee”, says Roberto.
