We have been waiting for this coffee all year. In 2012, when we picked up a sample bag from our favorite coffee shop in Springfield, Hebrews Coffee, and we were blown away by this single origin masterpiece.
This light/medium roast features a sweet strawberry and pineapple nose and continues the bright fruit on the palate. At times, the coffee reminds me of a bowl of Fruit Loops because of its strawberry taste. The acidity provides the sweet juicy palate yet the roast profile smooths out the coffee with hints of roasted cocoa nibs and milk chocolate. This year the coffee received 93 points from Ken Davids at Coffee Review and we wholeheartedly agree.
Enjoy this at the shop as a pour over and we think you will feel the same as us. Whether hot or iced, the Elida Estate Panama is by far our favorite coffee of the year.
