Panama Altieri Alessa Geisha Washed Coffee

“This coffee has ranked high at the recognised best of Panama Auctions for many years." - Ivica Cvetanovski, Founder, Coffea Circulor

Located within some of the best coffee producing areas in the world, Altieri produce prize-winning Typical, Caturra, Catuai and Geisha Coffees.

Founded by Eugene Altieri, an Italian-American businessman residing in Panama who bought the farms. Beginning to grow coffee in the early 2000 and earning various awards, his children are following his legacy. Each farm has its own micro-climate which permits the production of different, unique, quality coffees.

The coffee cherries are manually selected and cleaned to make sure they are completely mature. The coffee cherries are pulped to remove the fruit layer and keep the mucilage layer. The fermentation occurs in a 24 hour tank full of water. Tiny micro organisms generate enzymes to help break down the mucilage. After the fermentation, the beans are washed to remove the mucilage from the bean. In the final stage, the parchment is later sun dried on African beds at 1,800 masl until 11% humidity is achieved. Parchment is mechanically removed and afterwards, the beans are placed in our controlled temperature warehouse for resting in GrainPro bags.

This prize-winning lot is arranged by our dear friends the Altieri family.

    A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

    Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
    ...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
