Panama Elida Estate Typica Natural


We have offered coffee from Panama Elida Estate for several years, and this year is no exception, despite the smaller crop sizes throughout Panama. We are continually impressed by the care and thought that goes into the farm's processing methods, but we are not the only ones to take notice. Elida made headlines this year at the Best of Panama Competition (which we attended), where two of their coffee lots broke world records for the highest prices paid for coffee (per pound). Their Geisha Green Tip Washed sold for $661.00/lb at auction, and their Geisha Green Tip Natural sold for a whopping $803.00/lb. This Typica Natural, while much more reasonably priced, still shows the flavor and processing care that has made Elida so famous. This varietal had a tiny production, just a couple of bags, so we bought as much of it as we were able.

Letter to New Haven Register Sept 12, 2013. "Businesses can learn from Willoughby's". It gives me great pleasure to know that a quality local business of which I have been a longtime supporter is as good as - if not better than - I thought it was......

Adam - Afghanistan
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! All the guys in my unit are now hooked. Just thought you might like to know that you have a following here in Afghanistan!......
