Elida Natural Lot 12 Panama
|Roaster Location:||Boulder, Colorado|
|Coffee Origin:||Boquete growing region, western Panama|
|Est. Price:||$18.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||September 2015|
Sweet, cidery, gently bright. Pear, almond, sweet cocoa, a hint of flowers in aroma and cup. Round, resonant, balanced acidity; lightly but distinctly syrupy mouthfeel. Cocoa, pear and almond notes soften but sustain in a clean, quiet finish.
A fine example of a “natural” or dry-processed coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is sweeter and deeper-toned than the more familiar wet-processed coffees of Panama. Produced entirely from tree of the respected Catuai variety of Arabica. The Lamastus family’s Elida Estate averages the highest growing elevations in Panama coffee: 5,500 to 8,200 feet (1,700 to 2,500 meters). Dragonfly Coffee is a Boulder, Colorado-based micro-roaster that produces high-quality coffees and supports worthy causes.

Who Should Drink It
A very delicate, cider-toned version of the natural or dried-in-the-fruit profile. May particularly appeal to those who enjoy coffees with a vibrant though softly, roundly stated acidity.
