It was without a doubt one of the best coffees I have EVER, EVER had. I guess the best endorsement came from my boyfriend who is super-fussy. He is actually a very sweet guy but for some reason about a MILLION TIMES fussier than I am about coffee... Klatch hit a home run with him. He rarely gives a coffee an A+. Usually his reaction is a sober "it's good" and after I say "what do you MEAN "it's good??'" he says "It's O-kay" and when I say "What do you mean "just O-kay?!?!?" he says "Well, it just doesn't have much going on!" WELL...the Klatch Panama not only got a heartfelt "This coffee is EXCELLENT" from him but he practically wrote a sonnet and sang an aria in its honor. When I took the first sip I knew I was having something really out of the ordinary---you just know from the first sip that it is not a coffee that is easily topped.

This is a very interesting and complex coffee. The high altitude growing conditions and rich volcanic soil imparts something unique to this coffee. Carmen Estate takes great care in producing quality beans and it shows.
