Kuma Coffee - Seattle, Washington
We are in for a treat this month because, not only is Kuma Coffee an award winning roaster, but a few days ago, this month's coffee (Panama Carmen Estate) won an award at the 2015 Good Food Awards in San Francisco! This bag normally retails for $17 before taxes & shipping and My Coffee Pub members got it for $14.99!
Here are some highlights about this month's coffee, a Panama Carmen Estate, taken from the Kuma Coffee website.
Panama Coffee is known for having bright Kenya-like acidity matched with perfumey and floral notes similar to a washed Yirgacheffe. This special lot of Panama Carmen washed was picked by us after sample roasting and cupping many seperate microlots that Carlos had to offer. This particular lot showed all of the characteristics we look for when we think of the perfect high grown Panamanian coffee.
Varietals: Caturra, Catuai, Typica
Elevation: 1750 Meters
Flavor Notes: Rum, Berry Compote, Riesling Grapes
