Panama El Burro Estate by Geisha Coffee Roaster Review |
  • Geisha Coffee Roaster

    Longwood, Florida
  • Panama El Burro Estate

Roast: Medium Review Date: September 2009
Origin: Boquete growing region, western Panama Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Intensely sweet flavor and aroma dominated by flowers, apricot and tangerine. Soft, syrupy mouthfeel, bright-toned but balanced acidity and a remarkably rich, brandy-toned flavor. Crisp finish with sweet stone fruit notes lingering in the long.

Notes: El Burro Estate is an award-winning coffee farm owned by the Lamastus family in Panama's famous Boquete growing region. Geisha Coffee Roaster is a Florida based Internet retailer with a wide assortment of coffee from around the world. The company has deep family ties to coffee farms in Panama, including this one. (However, the company name should not be confused with the Geisha or Gesha coffee variety, a particularly costly, distinguished variety of arabica also associated with Panama.) Visit or call 407-409-8704 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who appreciate refined intensity in a coffee that is roasted by the same family that grew 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.
