(MENAFN – Panama press room) Geisha coffees grown in Panama achieved near perfect marks by international juries, with up to 98 points, in the XXV International Best of Panama (BOP) tasting, which concluded August 7.
Nineteen international judges, from Bulgaria, China, Costa Rica, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the United States, while a group of national judges performed a mirror cut.
The note resumes the impressions of the judges, who expressed their joy to find the typical Geisha of Panama, with its unique flavor of blackberries, tropical fruits such as mango, pineapple, papaya, and above all very lemony, which shows the dedication of each coffee producer.
âIt is clear that more and more producers are using the most advanced processing techniques to increase the intensity of what can be tasted in the cup. There are also more varieties entering the competition and getting very high marks from the judges. It’s very exciting for the industry! Panama is once again breaking new ground in the ultra-premium specialty coffee industry, âsaid Will Young, Australian Chief Justice of XXV International Tasting of the BOP.
International judges rated Panama’s specialty coffees with much higher marks than last year, above 94 and 95, an indication of the quality of Panama coffee, added Daniel Peterson, president of the Panama Specialty Coffee Association (SCAP).
