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 initially 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.

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.

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.
