Camiseta is a district in the Boquete region of Panama, but also the name of the farm where this lot originates. It's a traditional wet-process coffee
The fragrance from the dry grounds indicates a classic, malty, balanced Boquete flavor profile. Caramel, hazelnut and hibiscus (City roast) prevail, becoming more like Dutch cocoa at Full City roast. In the wet aroma I get maple, caramel, almond extract, and milk chocolate smells. The cup is sweet, balanced well between brightness and body. It has apple acidity (malic) which seems a bit winey in the darker roast levels, and caramelized brown sugar sweetness. The soft, rounded, creamy mouthfeel is very pleasant, and a bit unique among coffees from this area which can be a little thin, (especially the famous Gesha coffees). It's not a super complex coffee, but has both sharp and sweet flavors on the palate, as well as a hint of cedar in the finish. I think it rates very well alongside wet-process, clean-tasting Costa Rica lots, as well as some of the Guatemala caturra coffees, and it isn't a Panama that will break the bank either!
