The Elida Natural is back! Producer Wilford Lamastus created these lots especially for Klatch Coffee giving the whole Klatch team and all coffee lovers something to be excited about. The Elida Natural offers an eye-popping fusion of tropical fruits and sweet chocolate aromatics. In the cup, the flavors become defined as cherry blossom, guava, black currant and dark berry along with a juicy finish. This year's crop offers a super balanced, intense, and sweet cup that lingers pleasantly, drawing you back in for more!

More than half of this farm is located in the Volcan Baru National Park, a protected ecological reserve and sanctuary for exotic plants, birds and mammals such as the tropical tiger. The Baru volcano is one of the highest volcanoes in Central America and covers 7 different climate zones. The coffee is grown up to 1,825 meters, the highest elevation to grow coffee in Panama.

There are several local conditions that set this coffee apart from others. The farm is located at a very high elevation, one of the two highest coffee farms in Panama. It is grown in rich, volcanic soil with a cool climate and a significant amount of fog and mist during the dry season. The coffee trees are surrounded by virgin-native cloudy rain forest, and because of the cool temperatures at night, it takes 2 to 3 years longer than the average coffee tree before these trees begin to produce. The low temperatures also contribute to an extended ripening time by 1 month, creating a more developed coffee bean.

Amazing Coffee sans tshirt November 6, 2016
Reviewer: Todd Arvidson from Auburn , CA United States  
I must admit, the Elida is one of the most flavorful coffees I've tried.  In fact, I'm on my second 5lb bag.  Initially plum/brown sugar notes on the front change strangely to more of a mocha flavor as it cools.  It's almost like two coffees in one.   It's roasted perfectly with a balance of oil conservation(holding flavors) and bringing out the best flavors of the bean.  All this would taste much better in a Klatch tshirt.

Ummm, chocolate November 2, 2016
Reviewer: Gerald Geary from Flower Mound, TX United States  
Smooth milk chocolate and currants - I was so enthralled with the first cup that I need to drink more before a thorough review. I think it's a favorite.

Bold Berries! October 5, 2016
Reviewer: Craigk from San Francisco, CA United States  
The new crib of Panama Elida Natural is sweet and fruity. Strawberry, blueberry with some of that neat Panama volcano action. Love this coffee as espresso. Even stands up to milk nicely.
