I know it’s no longer wintertime, but I can’t resist the snow and a good cup of joe. For Day 17, I’m trying the Teasia coffee Panama Boquete single origin whole roasted coffee beans. When I first picked up the bag and read about Panama, it’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to travel to. Located in Central America, these beans grow in a humid environment with ample shade and has an ideal growing climate. Because of the climate, these beans develop at a slower pace which allows them to become more flavorful.
One of my favorite parts of taste testing coffee is the smell of it. Once I open the bag of freshly roasted beans and as I grind the beans, I take a whiff and enjoy the pleasant aroma of the beans. The smell intensifies after the brewing process starts.
My first sip consisted of a small amount of an acidic flavor taste and I could really gather the roast of the coffee bean within each sip. This coffee is really smooth upon first sip, but midway I was hit with small bitter taste. If I were to pair this coffee it would be on a cold winter day along with a small bite size snack to get me going in the morning.
PRO-TIP- Add a small amount of creamer and sugar to soften the bitter taste.
