Subtly complex, deeply and resonantly sweet. Baker’s chocolate, star fruit, pear, oak, a hint of plum blossom in aroma and cup. Softly crisp, juicy acidity; silky mouthfeel. Chocolate and oak dominate in a sweet, layered finish.
From trees of the respected Catuai variety, a hybrid of two compact-growing Bourbon mutant selections, Caturra and Mondo Novo. 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). Old Soul is a roastery, bakery and crafter of artisan goods dedicated to quality in every form. Visit www.oldsoulco.com or call 916-443-7685 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
A classic Panama of the old, pre-Gesha days brought to a classic medium roast: soft but resonant, suave, quietly original.
