Panama Kotowa Duncan Organic


The Kotowa farm, in its third generation, has several outstanding plots of land. The plot where Duncan is grown is organically maintained and certified as such, and this holds throughout processing. We have had the pleasure of visiting Kotowa's farms, their old wetmill and their wonderful home, overlooking the beautiful Boquete mountainside and the Baru Volcano. Flavors include sweet green apple, dark berries and prune accompanied by a nutty and floral aroma.

This is a very elegant Geisha coffee with classic notes of floral, jasmine and tropical fruit. This is an excellent deal for anyone who appreciates the finesse of Geisha coffees.

I'm now a senior Navy officer serving in Afghanistan. Many of my friends are sending me Willoughby's coffee in care packages, and it is the biggest morale boost we get here!
