Panama Elida Estate by Coffee Klatch Review |
Roast: Light Review Date: September 2009
Origin: Boquete growing region, western Panama Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Raisiny cocoa and a hint of night flowers in the soft, understated aroma. In the cup round and delicately melodic: gently rich acidity, silky to lightly syrupy mouthfeel, cherryish fruit with continued hints of cedar and night flowers. Balanced, slightly dry finish.

Notes: This is a wet-processed or "washed" coffee produced by the award-winning Elida Estate. Coffee Klatch is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won both the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships brewing a Coffee Klatch espresso blend.

Who Should Drink It: A subtle, quietly complex coffee in the classic Panama style.


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.
