This is not your typical coffee from Panama. I love cupping higher end very special coffee. But most times it seems that the price makes me not buy it. Most people drink below average coffee and are happy. Not me, I can taste the difference!A higher Price does not always mean a better coffee and have I tasted many fantastic beans from all over the world that were really nice for the money. But usually those coffees come from places in the world nobody knows. This coffee is such small production that probably it will be gone before I will be able to order more. Sorry home roasters it may be out of your price range to buy green. There may only be a few of my customers that will try this coffee. The truth is there is coffee for me to sell and coffee for me to drink! Understand that a coffee like this is not a DARK roast coffee and is not suited for that type of roast. I wanted to buy their Geisha but hope to in the future. Panama has some of the most expensive coffee in the world.

Brewing it in a Chemex or pour over can really change the taste profile.
