Panama - Finca Gallardo

Fully Washed, Shade Grown, Family Owned

Creamy, brown Sugar, Hints of Dark Cherry

This is an excellent coffee from the Gallardo family, who have been growing fine Panama coffees for three generations.
The farm is currently owned by Jose Manuel Gallardo, who took over from his father.
Jose's son, Pocho, now manages the 556 acre farm.

The coffee is entirely hand-picked and sorted to ensure the finest quality and consistency from farm to cup.

A must try!

General Flavor Observations
Panama - Finca Gallardo

This is a medium to full-bodied coffee, with wonderful notes of milk chocolate and brown sugar. Well balanced, abundant milk chocolate, a mild acidity, and hints of dark cherry on the finish.

The aroma offers notes of warm nutmeg with soft, floral overtones.
The mouth-feel is round and creamy, with a sweet finish.

Whichever Roast Level you choose, you will be left with an extremely satisfying experience.

Roast Level Profile Notes
Panama - Finca Gallardo

My favorite roast level is Full City for the best balance of profile in the cup, but Full City (+) is very nice as well.

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast will alter the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

Offers a nice raw sugar sweetness, with roasted nuts and cocoa dominating the profile.
The body will be lighter, with soft, sweet hints of cherry, nutmeg, and cocoa. The finish will be crisp and bright.

Full City Roast (medium roast) - Preferred

This is my favorite roast level, and where I found that warm, yummy sweet-spot.
This roast offers a medium body with a smooth, creamy mouth feel, with plenty of milk chocolate highlighted by soft notes of dark cherry on the upper palate; all surrounded by a sweet, brown sugar finish. Amazing!

Full City (+) Roast

Our Full City (+) roast will provide a more silky, full-bodied experience.
The chocolate tones lean more to dark chocolate with a slight caramel sweetness.
The acidity will be tempered, yet you will still find notes of dark cherry highlighting the smooth, sweet finish.

Vienna Roast

This roast will provide a deeper and juicier body with darker, bittersweet chocolate notes and a kind of jammy sweetness.
The finish will be more pointed and lingering.

French Roast

Not recommended.

You Need To Try This Coffee
This Panama is one of the best varieties I've tried yet from Storehouse Coffee.
As another reviewer noted, it's tough to pick my favorite between this and the Costa Rican, so if you like that one you'll love this coffee too.

Im-PRESS-ive !!!
I love Central American coffees from Storehouse, so I wanted to give this Panama a try, and was definitely not disappointed. It is a robust, rich brew - filling the room with aroma, and filling the cup with flavor. I typically use the pour-over method for my morning brew, but when I decided to take it to the French press.......WOW! This is a great coffee any way you brew it, but this Panama really roars when pressed.

Loved this at the full city plus roast level. Description was spot on and worked well as a pour over or espresso! Try it!

Thanks for the recommendation
I can't decide which I like better - the Costa Rican or the Panamanian.
Both are excellent with the lighter roast, too.

Thanks for the recommendation of the beans from Panama!

Coffee nut
I followed Joe’ advice and he succeeded in helping me finally find a Central American coffee I like.
I’m a staunch full body dark roast Indonesian and African coffee guy without the citrus and fruity undertones.
This Panamanian coffee is outstanding with noticeable chocolate nuance. I like the full city plus roast level that leaves a nice oily sheen.

Can’t go wrong with this one folks!
