About the bean

Our current crop of Panama Boquete hails from the marvellous Don Vicente finca in the legendary Volcán Barú region - a gorgeous mountain town that boasts Panama's highest peak. People trek here from all over to climb Volcán Barú and delight in the unique vista from its summit: a panoramic view of both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. 

Four generations of the Yanguez family have farmed in this area dating back to 1930 when they first landed from Spain. Their prize-winning varieties are grown beneath a canopy of native forest cover at 1,300 metres above sea level. 

A perfect sweetie.

Taste Test

A Full City roast profile brewed in a Hario V60 pour over: What a lovely cup! Expect a sweet and nuanced coffee with flavour notes ranging from citrus to almond; very aromatic (dried plum and raisin). A balanced and bright brew with a round body and long finish. Works for a variety of brew methods. One of our favourite offerings of the year.

Roast recommendation: Medium to dark. For an explanation of our different roasts, see here:
