Panama Elida Estate by Willoughby's Coffee & Tea Review |
Roast: Light Review Date: April 2008
Origin: Boquete growing region, western Panama Price: $11.95/12oz

Blind Assessment: Big, deep, classically symphonic coffee. Intense aroma: black-cherryish fruit, white wine, flowers. In the cup syrupy body, powerful but rounded acidity, pungently juicy flavor with sweet lemon and night flower notes. Pure, smooth, fruit-and-flower saturated finish.

Notes: Willoughby's Coffee & Tea is a pioneer specialty coffee roaster recently reinvigorated and refocused on artisan roasting and an extensive collection of elite single-origin coffees. Visit or call 800-388-8400 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A grand but ingratiating, complete coffee gesture. Very light-roasted, but the green coffee is so sweet and roundly balanced that those who enjoy medium-dark roasts should take pleasure in it.


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.
