Panama – Baru Estate
|Roaster Location:||Kansas City, Missouri|
|Review Date:||June 2000|
Blind Assessment: A classic Central-America coffee dominated by a richly powerful acidity, a fat body, and a round, sweet, chocolaty finish.
Notes: A classic Central-America coffee dominated by a richly powerful acidity, a fat body, and a round, sweet, chocolaty finish. Baru Estate is a market name for one of the excellent coffees produced by the Café Volcan Baru mill. From the 1999 crop. The Roasterie is a wholesale roaster in Kansas City with an art deco label and consistently well-roasted coffees.
Who Should Drink It: A coffee that demands attention. A two-cup rather than three-cup breakfast coffee -- pair it with something sweet. Should be powerful enough to carry milk and anything else contributed to the cup.
