You will not regret ordering our Panama Boquete coffee beans.
They are offered as medium roast whole beans, or ground to suit your coffee making style - please ensure you select the required grind type before adding the item to your shopping cart.
An excellent premium specialty coffee.
Incredibly balanced stone fruit and rich, syrupy caramel notes.
Panama Boquete coffees exhibit excellent brightness with a clean fruit note at the optimal roast level.
With hints of peach and dried apricot we love Panama coffee for the massive caramel notes they can deliver and the versatility to span both black and milk-based coffees.
Panama, along with Costa Rica are now expensive origins for sourcing coffees due to declining supply levels.
Both Panama and Costa Rica have gradually reduced the areas for farming as their economies have modernised and the urban sprawl reaches out into lands that had previously been pastoral but are converting into residential developments.
This is applying pressure on the volumes of coffees harvested each crop and Panama in particular now commands pricing that can be literally double comparable Colombia and other Central American origins.
At $27 a kilo, this premium coffee is a steal and priced at least 40% cheaper than other specialty roasters in Australia.
Specialty cafes in Melbourne order single origin Panama coffees from us regularly to use as a great espresso/black shot - it really has great balance and sweetness with a delightful acid lift
Panama is a producer of truly magnificent coffees -silky smooth, creamy, sweet, rich and rewarding.
These days, a lot of specialty cafes order Panama coffees to feature as a Single Origin - they are simply that good.
Problem is though supply is restricted/limited and super-expensive.
We have always loved Panama coffees, but it's getting to the point the prices demanded for the raw coffee can be close to double that from comparable origins in Central and South America. Along with Costa Rica, Panama is pricing itself out of the global coffee market - for the simple reason there is less land and less farming of coffee in Panama as real estate and tourism reclaim coffee estate plantations for development of apartments and housing.
It's a shame actually - Panama produces lovely, consistently high grade coffees.
A very sweet note up high is developed on the mid-palate - including poached apple and peach - it is just delightful.
For those of you who have never had a nice Panama coffee - now is the time to get into it.........I doubt I have ever seen a better crop.
Grown at 1600 metres above sea level from Caturra varietal in dark volcanic soils surrounded by an ideal micro-climate.
