Panama sits comfortably within the Coffee Belt, a latitude range centered around the equator that puts forth conditions that are ideal for coffee growth. Robusta beans contain much more caffeine than Arabica beans. It is common to experience Robusta beans as part of a blend, but these single origin Robusta Panama coffee beans stand alone extremely well. Panama coffee farms are typically quite small, and are tended to with care by the local owners. Anyone who is unfamiliar with the Robusta side of coffee is encouraged to check it out, and this Panama coffee is a great place to start!
What makes Panama Robusta Coffee special?
Many people consider Arabica beans to be superior to Robusta beans, but it really is just a matter of personal preference! Arabica beans are more widely consumed, and enjoyed for their flavorful and bright profiles. People that prefer Arabica beans are considered to have a front palate preference, as the best qualities of Arabica beans are tasted at the front of the mouth and tongue. Robusta beans are enjoyed more by back palate people, and typically have a heavy, strong taste profile. These Panama coffee beans offer all of the expected darkness and strength, as well as notes of Baker's chocolate. A pleasant bitterness is present and then slowly fades away for a surprisingly smooth finish. If you are a back palate type of person, or enjoy strong tasting coffee, this is for you!
