The trip to Panama 🙂
Panama is probably not as well known as Brazil or Ethiopia for its coffee production, it is small but exclusive! You get here tropical gourmet coffee with a correspondingly high price!
- The first coffee plants came to Panama at the beginning of the 19th century. A retired captain took them to Boquete.
- The altitude of 1,100 – 1,400 m, the influence of the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean, the rich volcanic soils and the shadow of the Baru volcano give the coffee its diverse flavours.
- The tribes of the Ngobe-Bugle Indians were from the beginning a central part of the coffee industry in Panama.
- Varieties: Maragogype, Mundo Novo, Catuai, Bourbon, Pacamara, Cattura, Typica and last but not least the champion among the Panama Geisha coffees.
- Panama Geisha came 1930 from Ethiopia via Costa Rica in 1963 to Panama.
- Meanwhile, the Panama Geisha Hacienda LaEsmeralda is the second most expensive coffee in the world and has won many awards with its notes of jasmine, bergamot, mandarin and vanilla.
- Hand-picked, partly sun-dried / partly in dryers.
- Export 2014: 43,000 x 60 kg bags
- The coffee is distinguished by its very full body and a delicate aroma, is very low in acidity and digestibility.
- Delicate, sweet structure with a lively, refreshing acidity and floral to fruity aromas.
