BEST OF PANAMA 1st PLACE VARIETAL NATURAL 2021
This exquisite & one of a kind coffee has been verified by WCR (World Coffee Research) to be a unique genotype of the species Coffea Arabica - currently known only to be found in the volcanic Highlands of western Panama. Mokkita a unique variation of the Mokka variety, to date has not been found anywhere else in the world. The exact etiology / origination is unknown, however it's likely a regionally adapted subtype that developed overtime in this unique cloud forest environment. This coffee was first discovered by the Garrido family in 2005 and since then they have been working to increase production and awareness of this truly novel and compelling coffee.
Achieving an averaged score of 93 points from 18 international jurors (highest ever at the time for a non-geisha) this coffee took 1st place in the "Varietals Natural" category during the 25th 2021 Edition of Best of Panama coffee competition. Subsequently commanding the highest ever auction price for a non-Geisha during the international public auction. This is an extremely rare & limited coffee. Currently grown only on one farm in the world.
Taking this pursuit of excellence one step further we held 2lbs of the auction lot for a special extended barrel aging process. Using Oak barrels from Jamaica Blue Mountain coffees we conditioned this coffee for 18 months, then sealed and stored in a climate controlled room to finish. Yielding a deeply nuanced and exciting coffee for even the most discerning coffee lover.
