Blind Assessment:

“Very pleasant, sweet, solid cup — milk chocolate,” reported one panelist. Another pursued the same theme with more enthusiasm: “sweet; soft, creamy, beautiful to behold, subtle yet complete, … understated.” Apparently too understated for the majority of the panelists, who felt the virtues of this coffee stopped with the impressive sweetness.

Notes:

Runner-up in the 2000 Specialty Coffee Association of Panama Cupping Event. Sweet; soft, creamy, beautiful to behold, subtle yet complete. From several farms operated by Café Garrido, a family-owned coffee growing and exporting firm. Grown at elevations ranging from 4,300 to 5,000 feet (1,300 to 1,550 meters). Processed by the traditional ferment and washed method. From the 1999/2000 crop.
