Tasting Notes:Brown Sugar, Honey, Apple, Marshmallow
This coffee is from the Bambito Estate, located near Volcan Baru in Chiquiri Province. Chiriqui is situated in the lush mountain highlands of Panama, along the Caldera river (aptly named "Caldera", a type of volcano, and runs through Volcan Baru National Park). The elevation at Bambito Estate spans a range of 1600 to 1800 meters above sea level. Coffee plants benefit from the high altitude, slowing the cherry maturation, yielding denser coffee, which is conducive to higher perceived sweetness and acidity. The nutrient rich volcanic soil in the region also positively impacts the health of the coffee plants. Bambito is planted in a variety of coffee cultivars. This lot is a separation of Caturra and Catuai, but they are also growing smaller plots of Typica and Gesha too.
Note: To ensure the highest quality, all coffee is roasted-to-order. This can take 24 - 72 hours after order has been received and according to roasting schedule. You will be notified through email when order has shipped or ready for local pickup.
