  • Panama Don Pachi Estate Geisha

Roast: Medium Review Date: August 2005
Origin: Boquete growing district, western Panama Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Exceptional aroma: floral notes complicated by vanilla for co-cupper Rodger Owen and lemon and pineapple for Ken. In the cup brightly but sweetly acidy and delicately smooth in mouthfeel with a subtly balanced flavor that disappointed Rodger but excited Ken with its jasmine-like floral notes and (for Ken at least) a rich, chocolaty lemon.

Notes: Produced from trees of the Geisha variety of arabica, a variety with Ethiopian parentage that in the Boquete region of Panama appears to produce a lyrically soft, subtle version of the great floral and citrus wet-processed coffees of Ethiopia. Stumptown Coffee is a small-batch premium roasting company that wholesales its coffees as well as serves them in French press format in its three Portland cafes.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer delicacy to grandeur.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
