Topic: Where oh where have the great Bourbon & Typica Panamas gone... (2 msgs / 36 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
The Gesha Panama is a fantastic atypical Panama, but not a classic Panama.
Used to see Sweet Maria offerings of exceptional Typica & Bourbon Panamas,
last couple years seems mostly Caturra and or Catuai which just don't cut it
for my tastes. I miss them and I know they're still out there...

first not know. And in knowing know I know not. Each Personal enlightenment
found exploring the many divergent foot steps of Those who have gone before.

Mike,
I think they have moved to Guatemala!  All three of the current
offerings on SM from Guatemala are Typica and Bourbon.  I usually
don't care for coffee from Guatemala, but this year I have been
enjoying them like the old Panama coffees.  I really like the special
picking for Sweet Marias, Guatemala Antigua Peaberry "Maria Especial".
 To me it has hints of St. Helena coffee.  It makes a good SO
ristretto in my opinion.  Again, thanks for last Saturday.
