  • Panama Kotowa Duncan 2012 Microlot

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: August 2012
Origin: El Salto, Boquete growing region, Panama. Price: $14.95/12 ounces
 

Blind Assessment: Complex, spicy floral notes, tangerine-like citrus, sweet dark chocolate in aroma and cup. Brisk acidity; smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Rich, balanced, flower-saturated finish.

Notes: Certified organically grown. A conventional washed or wet-processed coffee, meaning both skin and fruit flesh were removed from the beans before drying, a practice which generally intensifies acidity and clarity of flavor. Klatch Coffee 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 Klatch Coffee espresso blend.

Who Should Drink It: The complex floral notes, which include spicy florals like aromatic tea rose and bitterish florals like lavender, are one good reason for aficionados to seek out this unusual coffee.

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.
