Trader Joe’s Panama Boquete Coffee – Whole Bean – Food Review

11/05/2017

trader joe's, panama boquete whole bean coffee, review, price,November 5, 2017

The first bad sign was the tear-off tab failing while trying to open the bag.  I had to resort to a Kelly clamp to fix that.  The second bad sign was the aroma of slightly burnt coffee beans coming from the bag.  It should be difficult to burn a light-medium roast.  The third bad sign was the aroma of almost tea coming from the cup.  Or maybe it was bouillon?  The fourth bad sign was the weak bitter coffee coming from the cup.

Well I’ve had worse and despite the four bad signs, the coffee is still drinkable.  For those who prefer less body in a coffee, this one’s for you. This coffee reminds me of the recently reviewed Nicaraguan Coffee.  Trader Joe does a really good job with their medium-dark roasts, so far the lighter roasts have generally been not as good.

And Boquete?  Boquete is a small city in Panama in the western coffee growing region.

Price  $8.99 (12 oz bag)
