It used to be that water decafs were generic coffees; you really couldn't verify that the source coffee was a good cup, or even specialty coffee at all! It was possible for large roasters to send their own lots to Swiss Water for decaffeination, but that was impossible for everyone else. Now we have been able to buy coffees that we cup as regular coffees and verify the quality, then re-cup after decaffeination to see the effect of the process. Panamaria is a really nice mix of Boquete Estate coffees that has placed in the Panama Coffee Competition in years past. As a Water Process decaf, it really preserves the primary cup character, the acidity and brightness of the cup. This is a sweet little cup, delicate, floral, a little simple but really nice! It's just amazing how much of the delicate brightness of the excellent Panamaria coffee is preserved after the decaffeination process. The fragrance and aroma have both citrus and floral elements. The cup has a light body, and great zesty brightness. Lemon and jasmine blossom come through. The aftertaste is crisp and brief, which suits this bright, refreshing cup character quite well.
