Come Visit our Coffee Shop:
Up in the Hill on Isla Bastimentos!

      Your stay in Bocas del Toro isn’t complete without a visit to our Coffee Shop! Set on the highest point of Isla Bastimentos, it’s a good 20 minute walk up to reach us. Passing through the afro Caribbean town of Old Bank and then onto a pretty jungle path before arriving to our farm. Come and enjoy our homegrown organic coffee while you listen to the chirps of the red frogs and songs of tropical birds overhead. The smell of cacao, coconut, coffee or herbs fill the air…depending what’s being made at the time! The white faced capuchin monkey loves to steal the fruits from our surrounding trees so if you hear a rustle of leaves..do look up! We hope to see you at Up in the Hill soon!

"Gem in the Jungle'' Our Reviews...

My new favorite coffee shop on earth! I’ll never forget this place. A rewarding hike takes you to the cutest outdoor shop. They have you remove your shoes, and take all your trash with you, everything was reusable, I loved these values!! And they sell adorable and unique jewelry, pipes, artwork, etc. The owners were lovely, hospitable people, and the food is some of the best I had in Panama.

Jeanette’s Up in the Hill coffee shop and cafe was truly welcome gem and the pinnacle of our hike over the mountain to the beach beyond. Truly a breath of fresh air in the humidity of the day. The coffee is delicious - we both had the mocha (coffee/chocolate) prepared with fresh coconut milk and although the brownie was recommended by others, I tried the banana bread which did not disappoint!

My colleague told me about this place, before I went to Bocas Del Toro and she recommended their cocoa with coconut milk! It's easy to find. Once the taxi boat drops you off in Old Bank you will find a sign for the coffee shop! After a moderate hike, I have reached Janets tranquil chill-out place! Her coffee shop has a great energy and everything from the decor to the menu cards are made with a lot of heart!
