Panama by Stumptown Coffee Roasters Review |

  • Panama

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: February 2004
Origin: Bouquete growing region, western Panama Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Finely balanced cup: delicately roasty, very sweet, with a shimmer of dry acidity. Under the impact of the roast the crisp aromatics lean toward leather and an herb-toned chocolate.

Notes: The Bouquete region of Panama near the border with Costa Rica produces some of Central America's most sweetly balanced and elegant coffees. 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. Visit or call 503-230-7797 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: This wonderfully sweet coffee with a gentle backbone of roastiness and acidity should make a fine multiple morning cup.


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.
