This year marks Klatch Coffee’s 25th Anniversary and Lamastus Family Estate's 100th Anniversary, we have the excited to share these excellent accomplishments in such a landmark year. The Elida Estate is one of our oldest Direct-Trade partners. We were the first U.S. Roaster to bring Elida Estate to the U.S. with his first year producing his Elida Natural Catuai.

This event will be held at our beautiful Roastery and Training Lab in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Klatch Roastmaster, Mike Perry, will be speaking about the seed to cup process of this coffee. 2X Barista Champion Heather Perry and 3X Brewers Cup Champ Todd Goldsworthy will be preparing cups of the most expensive coffee in the world, sold at $803 per pound and world's highest rated coffee of 97+ points.

About The Coffee
Mike's cupping of the Elida Geisha Washed at the 'Best of Panama' offerers notes of a powerful and complex coffee starting with an aroma of tropical fruit. Cupping flavor notes of life savor, orange, apricot, peach, tangerine, and juicy sweetness. Mike scoring an amazing 97+. Cooled sugar cane, mango, all the stone fruits and sweet orange. His notes for Elida Geisha Natural are clean and nice with coco, grape, berry, raspberry, blackberry, lemonade 93+ points. Cooling raspberry and Cool-aid -94 points, nice acidity. Improving with floral and geisha, an amazing experience 94.5, giving this natural a solid 94.

A follow up on last year's 601 Esmeralda Geisha world record coffee, Klatch Coffee once again will be bring the best, New World Record Geisha home.

Words from Wilford Lamastus:

"Since the first year we started producing full-specialty coffee in Elida Estate, Mike Perry and the Klatch Coffee family believed in us and immediately we started a business relationship. It has become now the longest non-stop relationship with our friends the Perry family. Mike is still our customer, but more important our friend, we enjoy his company every time he comes to Panama or when we go and visit him in LA and specially during the Best of Panama.

I am so pumped that in Elida Estate's 100th Anniversary, which is the same year as Klatch Coffee 25th Anniversary, Mike was able to get a piece of our biggest accomplishments in Elida Estate's history, which are our two Geisha lots that got 1st place in each geisha category of the BOP competition Elida Geisha Washed and Elida Geisha Natural. Those are the 803 and the 661 (Natural and washed geisha) lots that got the highest prices EVER in coffee auction history. Elida Geisha Washed also broke a record in total points (94.66) and Mike was one for the judges that scored over 97 points. It has been an unbelievable year for Elida Estate being the 100 anniversary with all these excellent accomplishments and we are honored and glad that we can share this with our current longest coffee sourcing relationship, Klatch Coffee."
Thank you,
Mike and the Klatch Family
