Callejón Seco | Altieri Specialty Coffee Natural Typica from Panama
Recommended Roast Level
The Altieri farm continues to push the boundaries of their acclaimed Cup of Excellence reputation. The cup clarity and consistency we get out of Altieri's coffees are incredible. This typica variety delivers that competition-grade consistency with a very sweet and light profile. Distinct sweet notes of brown sugar paired with a lot of tea-like florals come together with a nice smooth bitterness in the finish.
Altieri Specialty Coffee Production
Altieri Specialty Coffee is a family-owned group of coffee-growing farms from Boquete in Panama, founded by Eugene Altieri, an Italian American businessman residing in Panama. They have two farms located in Boquete, called Mima Estate in the area of Callejon Seco and Pipim Estate in the area of Alto Lino. They produce varieties of Geisha, Typica, Catuai, and Caturra. These prize-winning coffees are grown on the Eastern slope of the Baru Volcano, surrounded by the virgin cloud forests of the Baru National Park, at a height of between 1,600 and 2,200 meters above sea level, in an area known as Callejón Seco and Alto Lino. This area consists of volcanic soil, drained on the slope of the volcanic mountain, at an altitude where winds from the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans collide creating microclimates different from the rest of the country. After fifteen years of coffee growing and earning various awards, the second generation of the Altieri family is following Eugeneʼs legacy, working together to expand the Altieri Specialty Coffee brand.
