PANAMA PREMIUM BOQUETE – MAMA CATA ESTATE – MOKKA NATURAL - 6oz
This Mokka has the best story and rating out of all the “super premium” Panamas we sourced this year. It is a TRUE Panama Mokka. In The Best Of Panama competition, these beans sold for $142.50 per pound!
From light to dark you are in for a tasty treat. This cup is filled with unique floral and fruit tones throughout the roast levels that balance with a wonderfully spicy chocolaty undertone. A very clean, smooth coffee. Although this is one heck of a tasty treat for most, if you do not like fruitier, sweet and floral coffees, this might not be for you. We found a sugary sweetness comingling with layers of soft fruit and a dryer complex semi-smoky chocolaty spice, layers and layers of goodness. If it were not for the price, easily a cup we would drink everyday, but for special guests, this is the coffee!
QUANTITIES ARE EXTREMELY LIMITED!
Mama Cata is a very top notch award winning farm that very seldom makes it to the US. Located in some of the best growing territory in Panama, Jose’s highest elevation and most renowned farm (he owns Garrido Estate as well as some other smaller fields). Some of the biggest names in Panama coffee are also located in this prime territory, Hacienda Esmeralda, Elida Estate and La Jones are all his neighbors. Since his coffee is mostly obtained by foreign markets, many in the US have not heard the name Mama Cata before unless they are watching the coffee competitions.
Founded in 1911, one of the original premium Panama farms, currently owned by Jose David Garrido Perez (who also owns Garrido, and just happens to be decent friends with our Panamanian farmer buddy, Keith Pech). Jose had 3 of his coffees place in theBest of Panama. This farm knows how to grow/process some of the world’s best coffee.
