flavor notes explained

dark chocolate - We chose dark chocolate because there was a definite, smooth bitterness that sat comfortably throughout the whole cup.

green apple - There was a touch of malic acidity in the cup that lended itself to a green apple. This bit of acidity is not meant to indicate that the profile is necessarily sour, but rather point to the type of acidity that comes through a bit as the cup cools.

pear - Pear is like an apple, but rounds out that smoothness. The texture of pear is more of what we’re thinking of as we take note; the smooth and sweet nature of pear ties in this note very directly.

about Alto Lino Estate

Altieri Specialty Coffee is a family-owned group of coffee-growing farms from Boquete in Panama, founded by Eugene Altieri, an Italian American businessman residing in Panama. They have two farms located in Boquete, called Mima Estate in the area of Callejon Seco and Pipim Estate in the area of Alto Lino. They produce varieties of Geisha, Typica, Catuai, and Caturra. These prize-winning coffees are grown on the Eastern slope of the Baru Volcano, surrounded by the virgin cloud forests of the Baru National Park, at a height of between 1,600 and 2,200 meters above sea level, in an area known as Callejón Seco and Alto Lino. This area consists of volcanic soil, drained on the slope of the volcanic mountain, at an altitude where winds from the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans collide creating microclimates different from the rest of the country. After fifteen years of coffee growing and earning various awards, the second generation of the Altieri family is following Eugeneʼs legacy, working together to expand the Altieri Specialty Coffee brand.
