Panama Elida Estate, Best of Panama #3 by PT's Coffee Roasting Co. Review |
Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: December 2007
Origin: Boquete growing region, western Panama Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Impressively intense, sweetly pungent aroma: flowers, chocolate, hints of butter and fresh-cut cedar. Rich, round, smooth-bodied and syrupy in the cup, with pleasing but limited aromatics: dusk flowers and hints of chocolate and dry berry that fade in the rich but simple finish.

Notes: A prize winner in the 2007 Best of Panama competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed third out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 90.2 from an international jury. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT's motto is "without the love, it's just coffee." Visit or call 888-678-5282 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy rich but simple beverages.


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.
