are participants in a number of international competitions as jurors,
such as the Cup of Excellence, now held in about eight countries a
year. These competitions seek to rank the best coffee in a particular
country in a given year. The coffees are later auctioned and the best
fetch a considerable price due to their excellence and scarceness. Some
Serious Select coffees derive from other single country competitions,
some from private auctions - like the world renowned Hacienda Esmeralda
from Panama - and still others are the product of experimentation by
growers pushing the envelope.
sought after and often more expensive coffees are what Serious Select
is all about. We will roast and ship Serious Select coffees on
Tuesdays, one or more coffees per week, so you may enjoy these coffees
at their absolute peak of flavor.

Panama Finca Lerida Honey Process
Finca Lerida sits on one of the most desirable, high properties in all of Boquete, Panama and is a site that attracts numerous bird species, so many in fact, that the facility hosts many bird tours. They have been producing top quality coffee for 90 years during which times the property has changed hands several times. The current owners are intent on restoring the farm to coffee greatness. They produce both washed and 'honey' coffee, which leaves some coffee pulp to dry on the fruit, thus allowing fruit flavors to penetrate to the beans. This is a wonderful example of honey coffee, one leaning more toward natural process, and is markedly different from the more delicate washed version that we are also offering.
