Central American

Panama Boquete La Santa Estate

Panama Boquete La Santa Estate

The two main coffee regions in Panama are Boquete and Volcan. This one is is Northern Panama in Boquete and was founded in the 1960's by the Gallardo family and is now in its third generation of farmers. The coffee is 100% ripe when it is picked, and it is sorted carefully and processed on site. They are proud of their work and their harvest.

This is one of the very first arrivals from Central America this year, and it's very good. It reminds me of a really nice Costa Rica. It has some lemon, juicy, nutty, caramel notes with a lot of acidity. Sort of a breakfast-blend vibe. . 

We roast it quite light. 8 degrees past the ending of the first cracks (just like a Costa Rica). Keep it out of the 2nd cracks. Even as you approach 2nd cracks, the bean has lost a lot of what makes it special.

US Arrival: May 2024
