Versatile. That's my one word description of this coffee. It's great in espresso, it's great in a drip coffee pot. I love it iced. Panama coffees are very popular. I think this is part of why. This coffee tastes like a sweet caramel candy was dropped in it and allowed to melt. It is truly a brilliant bean.
In 1924, engineer Mönniche finally retired from the Panama Canal and along with his wife Julia moved to Finca Lerida. Here he built his house – completely by hand – in a Norwegian countryside style and built the first Coffee Plantation by gravity in Panama. Aside from this he designed and patented the “sifon”, a device made to separate good beans from the bad. This device is now is used worldwide by many coffee plantations and it is still working in Finca Lerida where Mönniche’s old processing plant still processes coffee of excellent quality. In 1929, Finca Lerida exported to Germany its first shipment of Panamanian coffee. This began Panama’s high reputation as one of best quality exotic coffee producers in Europe.
