Colombia El Trapiche
This excellent microlot is actually a blend of three varieties from neighboring, smaller farms in San Pedro de Cartago. The primary farm El Trapiche is about 3 hectares at 1900 meters. Owned and operated by Marco Aurelio Lasso, this farm consistently produces delicious, complex, quality Caturra and Typica varieties. You can pick up a bag here.
While technically a new arrival, the appearance of this Panamanian Geisha certainly deserves special recognition. Grown on the La Cabaña farm in Finca Santa Teresa and using the more recently developed "honey" process that combines the best parts of natural and washed processing methods, this coffee was included in the Best of Panama 2013 selection.
