Panama Auromar Gesha Coffee
Roberto Brenes’ farm, Auromar, holds a special place in our hearts – it produced the coffee used by our team in 2019 to win our first UK Barista Championship. Since then, we’ve brought Roberto’s coffee back each year, because it’s truly one of the best we’ve ever tasted.

At the core of what makes this coffee special is the relationship between the cultivar and the place where it is grown. The gesha cultivar is known for being the greatest in coffee because of its immense flavour palette. When grown with care in an environment like Volcán, the coffee is able to show off its sweetest, most floral characteristics.

You can trace the roots of the gesha cultivar to the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia. The story goes that, in the 1960s, a USDA expedition to Ethiopia went to look for wild cultivars of coffee, to research and potentially begin cultivating them. While there, they visited an area called Gesha, where they collected seeds. The samples ended up in a research lab in Costa Rica, and were largely ignored until the cultivar made its way to Panama and debuted to the world at the Best of Panama competition in 2004. It was here that it blew the judges away, and has won the top spot every year since.

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.
