Coucoucrazy is the brainchild of a crazy Belgian that went to seek out his happiness in Panama. The business incorporates a lot of things. Lets look at them one by one.
Let’s start at the beginning. It was always the plan to open a containerbar in a tropical place where coffee and pastry could be served. The coffee is sourced from Panamanian fincas up in Boquete, Volcan, Santa Fe, Volcancito, Jamarillo,…. Often there is also foreign coffee avaliable from Colombia, Costa Rica,… All the coffee served is sourced green and roasted on spot as to provide for a fresh cup. Our barista can help you find the cup that suits you and there is always enough to choose from, ranging from a floral soft and sweet Geisha to a nice lemon acidic Catuai.
Pair your coffee with one of our delicious sweets, made by a Belgian pastry chef and often with the best Belgian chocolate. Pies are always available, as are Belgian waffles, cookies…
Once in Panama it became obvious that something was missing – a good beer!! Since importing beer is a bit difficult the only other option was brewing it. So that is how it came to be that Coucoucrazy now also incorporates an artisanal brewery. Containers seemed to be a good fit so we put down one more to have room to brew. On top of the second container a tower was constructed so you can enjoy a view of the sea right from Coucoucrazy. If you are in the neighbourhood pop by on a Monday and experience one of our well known Monday sunset sessions.
To give people the chance to fully enjoy the relax natural environment that is our finca we have constructed a place for them to stay. Our casitas are available for short term rental, long term rental. Situated on the property between plants and animals you can come and feel one with nature.
Over time the terrain surrounding the bar, brewery and casita has grown to become a real finca. We have a garden that produces passion fruit, banana, turmeric, plantain, cranberry hibiscus, papaya, coffee… As we at Coucoucrazy also love animals our farm has grown over time with 2 dogs, a cat, 9 chickens, 2 goats, a sheep and 2 pigs. One of our goats (little Hans) was born right here at the farm and is very sociable.
