Tasting Notes

Panama occupies a rare space alongside Costa Rica, Ethiopia and Kenya in the top echelon of quality coffees.

Apple and plum move to a complex array of cocoa, dark chocolate and sparkling acids mid-palate.

Finishing with a long caramel and sweet malt candied finish.

Cup Attributes

Body : medium and rich

Aroma : jasmine, lightly toasted nut

Acidity : stone fruit, bright & juicy cup

Flavor : caramalised sugar and candied sweetness, dark chocolate


A deserving halo

Where do we start with the story of the fantastic rise in Panama's coffee quality? 

A fundamental springboard for this rise has been the overwhelming success of the highly prized (and expensive) Geisha varietal.

But Geisha is realistically an unaffordable luxury at close to $100 per kilo, pumped up by abnormally high levels of attention and hype.

Missing from the Panama coffee narrative has been the fantastic story of quality in Arabica SHG lots.

With a perfect micro-climate for growing coffee, and it seems many US citizens, Panama is also the ideal holiday or retirement destination.

Panama SHG (Strictly High Grown) coffees are a notch above comparable offerings from Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Colombia and El Salvador.

Panama coffees regularly sit in our top-selling range and are always deliciously sweet with gorgeous stone fruit notes. 

Customers love the sweet and tasty flavours, returning to re-purchase repeatedly.

This stunning lot offers apple and plum crispness with intense caramel, finishing with sparkling citrus acidity and decadent dark chocolate.

Handy brew guide from Justfreshroasted to help you achieve the best tasting coffee
Brew recipes are a guide only

Espresso brew recipe

Espresso brew recipes assume professional or commercial equipment (machine in grinder) are used.

For domestic (consumer) grade, please ensure you adjust the suggested values accordingly.

Dose - 20 grams

Yield - 38 grams

Brew Time - 29 seconds

Ratio - 1 : 1.85

Tips - For this medium-density bean, we suggest using dose changes first before attempting to adjust the grind.
As a black beverage, this Panama prefers a simple, open extraction.
In milk or dairy alternatives, try to tighten up the shot as much as you can without choking or over-extracting.
Rewards with generous flavour, syrupy body and fine sweet acidity.

At JustFreshRoasted coffee we roast the beans to a beautiful medium depth for maximum flavor, taste and enjoyment
How we roast your coffees

light, medium or dark

Each coffee in our store has a unique roast profile carefully engineered and continuously updated to achieve the best balance of flavor, body, complexity, acidity, sweetness and finish.

It's a never-ending process with new lots arriving almost weekly along with the constantly changing Melbourne weather conditions.

We don't use light, medium or dark as our guide. That's so outdated and quite frankly inaccurate with around 20 shades each of light, medium and dark.

The external or outside color is never a true indicator of a coffee's cup attributes (or performance).

In other words, coffee can appear dark outside but have under-developed internals (sour, flat, weak, thin, etc.) if it was roasted poorly.

Similarly, a light exterior can easily mask or hide internal scorching or invalid roasting profile.

The target for all of our coffees (excluding specific filter roast products that are intentionally roasted lighter) is medium.

Think cafe style and coffee that is best suitable for espresso or traditional brewing devices.

What's critically important to us is that we extract maximum goodness for you to enjoy.

After 20 years and hundreds of thousands of batches, we think our Tier 1 infrastructure, skills and experience surpass the market.

JustFreshRoasted helps explain how ground coffees go stale faster than whole beans and why grinding the coffee just before using is always the best.
did you know about

Ground coffee

Ground coffee will lose around 80% of essential vitality after 15 minutes oxygen exposure. Even ground coffee inside of a sealed, unopened bag will stale considerably within 2 weeks.

Some brewing applications, such as espresso, require roasted coffee in peak freshness to produce a delicious extraction. Other brew methods are less sensitive to the impact of staling coffee.

To ensure freshness, we never hold, store or manufacture any ground coffees. All our coffees are packed as whole beans within 1hr of roasting to lock in freshness.

When a customer orders ground coffee, we take fresh roasted beans, cut the seal, grind, clean and re-seal within 60 seconds. All at the moment your order is packed for dispatch.

We recommend for the best coffee experience to consider purchasing whole beans and grind only enough to brew just moments beforehand.
