La Villa will be a high end coffee house which will have a soft opening coinciding with the Boquete Fair. It will be located in the hex (party) room of the BCP and will be open all days except Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday morning. The famous BCP market will use the space on Tuesday morning.

Elizabeth Farrell de Rios is busy painting and transforming the space. Stop in and see what she's doing. She and husband Abel will have a coffee roaster, books to borrow, free wi-fi, specialty coffee drinks, and some snack items.

The success of this venture is pretty vital to the long term success of BCP and it's ability to pay the rent on the facility. We're hoping every one will support Elizabeth in this wonderful new venture.

Yes, the ability of BCP to pay the increased rental for the building and the never-ending maintenance costs is tied to a successful sub-lease of this space.

Most people in the community don't know that BCP doesn't own the building and the rent is increasing substantially. Maintenance issues and costs are major.

The plays do not pay a fraction of the bills.

What does "high end" mean in this context?  Overpriced coffee?

If BCP rents the building, shouldn't the owner be responsible for maintenance costs? Just curious.

In my experience the owner is usually responsible for maintenance costs. However, the contract for BCP must have been negotiated differently--meaning a lower rental but owner has no maintenance responsibilities.

Just my opinion; no knowledge about dollars involved but the owner may have the better side of this BCP contract.
