Panama Boquette SHB


Starting at $6.75 / lb
As low as $5.50 / lb

If you want a good Boquete at a budget-conscious price, this is the one for you!

A deeper, earthier Panama coffee, the Hortigal strikes you with a pleasant floral note that almost instantly morphs into a white wine brightness. I couldn't decide if "buttery" should be a characteristic of this coffee or an actual taste! It's that smooth and creamy on the palate. A different and very good Panama coffee.

Grown high (~5000ft elevation) in the Boquete region of Panama, we have a stunningly bright bean, which will represent the entire country well. Fruity (one of the rare coffees that taste of oranges) and brightly nutty, with a smooth earthy base decorated with cocoa and floral overtones. Its abundance of flavors, both bright and subtle, contribute to the complexity of this coffee, but it's the overall balance with which they are displayed that make it one of my favorites when I want a mild cup of coffee. Until I can find another outstanding lot of natural processed Catuai, this will remain the coffee our logo character has in his cup. Be it the jungles of Panama or the deserts of Arizona, this is the coffee to drink while watching the sun set on a long, hard work day.

Try before you stock up with a 1/2 pound sample!

Panama Boquette has been my favorite for several years when our local roaster offered it. I used to buy roasted beans from him, but he couldn't always supply me with Panama Boquette. So, my kids got me a roaster and now I roast my own. I like the smooth flavor, and the way it smells right after grinding. I always take a huge whiff before I brew it. I roast it to a medium roast and have found it to be quite satisfying. As far as all the "tones" and all that elite stuff, I couldn't tell you. My palate is not that refined. I just know it's never bitter, never flat, and has a good flavor.

Just finished my third batch, and I must say that this is a great all-around cup. I roasted one city roast, a dark and then a lighter (almost cinnamon) roast. Each one was a treat. At this price, I'd have to say it's a steal.

I didn't particular care for this bean. I tried different roast levels and different brew levels. I was never able to get a flavor out of it. It was just like, meh.

I bought a pound and roasted 25% in a dark roast and then the rest in lighter roast. both were fabulous. I enjoyed the lighter roast more.

I cannot vouch for the "nutty" or "buttery" tones of this blend because my coffee palate is not that sophisticated. It is a mild bean, almost like drinking tea, and it was hard as hell to grind. That baffled me. I will not buy it again. I miss Cuban coffee. Too bad El Escorial does not ship to the states.
