DL No. 65: Bocas del Toro
Crisp, full body. Boysenberry aroma. Tastes of cherry cola.
Creativa Coffee District in Panama is gaming the change in Central American coffees with their contemporary art-inspired and visionary processing methods. Dillanos Limited No. 65 Bocas del Toro is among their recent triumphs.
This limited edition coffee is sourced from wild-grown Catuai, Typica, and Geisha varietals that pepper the landscape of a once abandoned farm. Owner Alvaro Miranda has fully restored the 5-hectare (about 12 acres) area of “little pastures” in the Chiriquí District. And through their partnership with Creativa, the dedicated staff are free to concentrate on expertly crafting cherries that produce truly unique coffees.
Bocas del Toro is the result of coffee cherries drying in an oxygen-deprived, or anaerobic, environment. This method slows the fermentation process down slightly from others—typically taking 24 to 72 hours to complete. The lactic acid that forms creates a more vibrant flavor profile. You’ll taste exactly that in the crisp, full body Bocas del Toro invites you to experience.
