|Review Date:||October 2010|
Richly sweet in the aroma, combining complicated layers of flowers, crisp lemon and a slight peppery note. A rounder version of the aromatic complexity carries into the cup, with deepening notes of aromatic wood. Medium body, delicate mouthfeel and floral-toned acidity. Toasty sweetness persists into the finish along with a suggestion of astringency as the cup cools.
A prize winner in the 2010 Best of Panama competition, where as a green (unroasted) coffee it placed fourth out of hundreds of entries, attracting a score of 88.35 from an international jury. This coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Carmen Estate is among the most distinguished of Panama's many fine coffee farms, with a string of successes in green coffee competitions. An integral part of New York’s coffee renaissance, Brooklyn based Café Grumpy opened its first café in 2005 and has since expanded to three locations, in addition to their own roasting facility.
