This is the Colombia Mejor brought to you by Panther Coffee Roasters. Mejor, meaning ‘best’ in Spanish, is a regional blend of coffees from smallholder producers around Popayán in the department of Cauca, Colombia. These farmers grow Castillo coffee on small plots of land- typically only one or two hectares. These coffees are processed in the washed method and dried on tables at the farm. Notes of sweet cherry, citrus, and milk chocolate combine with great intensity of flavor and a lingering sweetness.

Difficult to get dialed on espresso machine. Didn’t get much fruity flavor from it
I get a lot of the chocolate/cherry, but not much citrus. Not for me.
Very nice and light. Not too much citrus which is nice.
Compex, rich brew
Darker than I would prefer.
Loved this, got more apricot than clove out of this one. I brewed at 40g of beans per 1035ml water.
This coffee is excellent. It works very well as espresso. The flavors are bold, bright and balanced. I definitely get the sweetness as well. More like this one, please!
