Panama has and will always be one of my favorite coffees. The recent years Panama coffees has been “uplifted” as the well know Geisha has found its place in Baru/Volcan region. Most of the coffee are dominant with Grape/Citric or Bergamotte notes – very pleasent and mild in both taste and flavor.
Its ideal as both espresso and drip coffee.
