The following article is from page 7 of the July 2017 issue of The Panama Good Times newspaper.

For those who may not know, ATP is the Panamanian Tourism Authority. The location of the Coffee Exploration Center is a place that locals know as "CEFATI", which is the old name for the tourism ministry. There is a great viewpoint for seeing Bajo Boquete at the CEFATI building.
