|Review Date:||September 2014|
Balanced, sweet-toned, quietly complex. Fresh cane sugar and lush honeysuckle in front, supported by layered hints of orange, vanilla, roasted cacao nib, thyme. Crisp, balanced acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Vanilla and orange in particular carry into a continued sweet, gently flavor-saturated 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).Old Soul is a roastery, bakery and crafter of artisan goods dedicated to quality.
