Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet and richly savory. Black cherry, tamarind, liquorice bark and lavender in aroma and cup. Gentle, balanced acidity; levitatingly velvety mouthfeel. Cocoa and black cherry notes predominate in the crisp, resonant finish.
Notes: 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: 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: Those interested in a particularly aromatic, dried-in-the-fruit incarnation of this classic Panama coffee.
