Our Small Batch Series is a program of limited decaf green coffee offerings that features hyper-seasonal, highly traceable, and really tasty coffees. Our newest offering is from Chiriquí, Panamá.
Guided by the sourcing experts at Equation Coffee, we are delighted to be able to offer an extremely special Panamanian coffee—our first—as part of our Small Batch Series.
This coffee comes not only from the revered coffee-growing nation of Panamá, but from one of the most unique coffee projects within that country, if not the world. Creativa Coffee District in Chiriquí is nominally a coffee mill, but it’s also a cultural project. The facility’s wet mill and drying patios are also the home to artistic collaborations and residencies—tying together the culture of the Boquete region with the magic of its world-renowned coffees.
Creativa Coffee District is also a leader in terms of farming innovation, as in their Starts With Soil (SWS) initiative, a partnership with a group called Biodiversal who work to analyze soils and provide guidance over crop stewardship and biodiversification, increasing productivity of the farms who work with CCD as well as providing environmental benefit.
This Small Batch offering is a curated selection of coffees from farms in Hornito, Reinaciemiento, and Boquete processed at the CCD mill in Boquete. The anaerobic natural process lends the cup a developed lactic acidity and creamy body with complex, intricate notes of cinnamon, black tea, mango, and plum. We have an extremely limited amount of this exceptional and special Panamanian offering, and look forward to the privilege of sharing it with you.
