Get excited! A beautiful new coffee from Panama just arrived at the Beanery and, with notes of blueberry, pineapple, and chocolate, it's a sip of Panamanian paradise. Panama Elida Natural is an exclusive, direct trade microlot from our new friends at Dragonfly Coffee Roasters. Fine coffee from Panama is difficult to find, and this one comes from the award-winning Elida Estate, the highest elevation coffee farm in the country: now that's a "top" coffee! Panama Elida Natural is fruity, chocolaty and sweet, with lively notes of pineapple juice and wine-like, slightly fermenty wild blueberry. As you sip, the blueberry notes ease into molasses, and the molasses eases into chocolate, for a long, lightly syrupy finish. Personally, I love tasting pineapple in a coffee. It's such a distinctive flavor, one that transports you to an entirely different place: in this case, the tropics of Boquete, Panama.
Dragonfly Coffee Roasters, 2019's Micro-Roaster of the Year, is a small-batch roaster based in the Mojave Desert of Henderson, Nevada. Founder Tamas Christman grew up on an isolated wolf sanctuary (yes, really!). One of the volunteers, a true coffee lover, brought his own Kona beans into the wilderness and taught Tamas how to roast them in a cast-iron pan over the fire. Tamas remembers the convivial influence of those beans, the aromas and flavors that brought everyone together. Years later, after earning a degree in chemical engineering, Tamas felt himself drawn back to the world of coffee, and started Dragonfly in 2011. Today, Tamas's conservationist roots inform their business practices, including eco-friendly roasting, generosity to their employees and the community, and direct-trade relationships with prominent, sustainable coffee farms like Elida Estate.
With notes of sweet pineapple, wild blueberry, and rich chocolate, this "top" coffee from Panama is hard to beat—and even harder to put down! Roasters compete for these types of coffees from Elida Estate, and with one sip, you'll understand the hype. Reserve your own bag of Dragonfly's Panama Elida Natural, an amazing micro-lot that sits at the very pinnacle of Panamanian specialty coffee. And hey, if you want to wear your Panama hat while you drink it, we won't say a word...
