|Roaster Location:||San Dimas, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Boquete growing region, western Panama|
|Review Date:||October 2007|
Blind Assessment: Very deep-toned, naturally sweet coffee. Chocolate- and cedar-toned fruit in the aroma. In the cup softly and richly acidy, syrupy in mouthfeel, with low-toned fruit that suggests chocolate, cherry, raisin. A hint of flowers as the cup cools. Round, sweet 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.
