Last year's Organic Panama coffee was not my favorite. Until the end, for some reason the last batch that I roasted I thought was some of the best coffee we've offered. I was excited to get a new batch from a neighboring farm. This coffee is incredible and I'm looking forward to drinking it regularly again.

  • Tasting Notes

    This lot from Koyner is aromatically sweet with the dry fragrance teetering between fresh honey and toasted hazelnut. There's a "freshness" to the cup, with an acidity that borders on effervescent. Crisp, Granny Smith apple and freshly spun honey come to mind while the cup is warm which cools into sweeter red apple and concord grape in the finish. The mouthfeel, while creamy, is medium bodied which allows for the sweetness and higher notes to shine.

  • Panama Volcancito Koyner Production

    Koyner stands for 'Don Koyner', or Senor Koyner. Senor Koyner refers to Alexander Koyner MacIntyre who emigrated from Canada to Panama in the early 1900's to purse coffee farming. He bought a large swath of land in what is now Volcancito de Boquete, in Northern Panama's Chiriqui Province and began to produce cherry. He also built the Kotowa wet mill for processing which is widely considered to be the oldest coffee processing station in all of Panama. The original wooden processing equipment is still maintained for show at the mill by Ricardo Koyner, Alexander's grandson who know owns and operates the coffee farms and mill. Don K is immediately adjacent to the Koyner's organic farm Duncan Estate (Last year's Panama Offering) which creates an interesting display of organic vs. conventional production methodology. Although several of each farm's slopes face the Pacific Ocean and Boquete Valley differently, and therefore having different exposure to daylight, its about as good a glimpse into tasting something processed in both manners that I have seen in the coffee world. Although scoring is often within a point or two of each other, each farm displays unique flavor from the other.

  • Packaging Note:

    This coffee is roasted to order within 24-48 hours of order. We recommend 2 days rest after roast, so this will be ready to drink when you receive it.
