Description: Brooklyn is a well-established plot sitting at 1,400-1,500 MASL at Finca Santa Teresa (FST). The coffee is grown under a canopy of natural shade, with trees including the ‘Poro’(Erythrina poeppigian) trees. Not only do these tropical evergreen trees provide the coffee with protection from the sun, they also help prevent soil erosion and their leaves provide natural fertilizer. To produce this honey lot, cherries are picked when fully ripe, and skins are pulped right before laying out on raised beds, under the high altitude sun. Honey’s at FST are turned frequently as the sweet honey mucilage develops and absorbs into the surface of the beans. The result is a unique sweetness along with the high-altitude sweetness.
As with most Honey processed coffee from Panama, Lot 27 from the Brooklyn plot is something special. Up front you get a pop of Fresh Raspberry and a complimenting note of Baking Spices while it lingers with the sweetness of silky mouthfeel of Vanilla Ice Cream.
