We’ve done it. We finally found a Panamanian coffee we love! Jeez it’s good. It’s a full on berry blast on the palate with notes of raspberry, blackcurrant, redcurrants and grapefruit. There is also a much darker, boozy note of cherries and Kirsch. It’s one for dry January for sure, if you believe in that sort of stuff. With milk (when brewed as a filter) some of the character is lost, so we’d recommend drinking it black if you can!

About This Coffee

We’ve done it. We finally found a Panamanian coffee we love! This is a first for us here at Roastworks and we’ll explain why. Sourcing coffees from Panama can be tricky (for many reasons we won’t get into) and up until now, we just haven’t found the one. Often, there is a lot of hype around certain coffees and when they’ve landed in the roastery for us to sample, they just haven’t hit the markers we look for when choosing coffees for our three-tier range. 

The price tag can also get a bit out of control and unnecessarily so. Don’t get us wrong, we believe the producer should be paid above the market rate for the work they have put in to achieve such a special coffee. Yet, a lot of the time the price is driven up due to marketing hype. We’ve always wanted to make speciality coffee more accessible and buying overpriced and exclusive coffees isn’t the right vehicle for achieving this – for us anyway.

This coffee is produced by Finca Hartman – a well respected, 3rd generation family-run enterprise based in Santa Clara, Renacimiento. This coffee is shade-grown under native forest trees which the Hartmann family decide to keep intact to improve biodiversity.

It’s a full-on berry blast on the palate with notes of raspberry, blackcurrant, redcurrants, grapefruit and grapes. There is also a much darker, boozy note of cherries and Kirsch. It’s one for dry January for sure if you believe in that sort of stuff. With milk (when brewed as a filter) some of the character is lost, so we’d recommend drinking it black if you can.
