Impressively rich, deep, savory-sweet; dark chocolate, dusk flowers, honey, berry in aroma and cup. Comfortably backgrounded acidity; full, almost chewy mouthfeel. Chocolate in particular carries into a long, resonant finish.
This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. The Lamastus family’s Elida Estate averages the highest growing elevations in Panama: 5,500 to 8,200 feet (1,700 to 2,500 meters). Clatch coffee is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won both the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships brewing a Clatch coffee espresso blend.

Who Should Drink It
The style of coffee we used to call “after-dinner” coffee, meaning a rich, full-bodied, deeply complex coffee with acidity pushed to the background.
