Panama Esmeralda vac pot style
The official start of the festive season began on Thursday and we celebrated it not only by making a special turkey, but also by brewing some special coffees. Not that I need a special occasion to brew an extraordinary coffee, but like I said this is the start of my favorite time of year.
The star of the coffee show was the Panama Esmeralda. This coffee tasted good for one of four reasons.
- The coffee chemistry set (vacuum pot) I used to brew it in looked really sexy and the sexiness rubbed off on the coffee.
- The mild buzz we had all obtained from consuming French table wine and cheese opened up the taste buds the perfect amount.
- The coffee itself is indeed stellar
- All of the above combine to produce a scintillating sensory experience.
My vote is for number four. In regards to number three these are some descriptors I heard. Coconut, cedar, sparkling tropical fruit juice, strawberry, and cherry.
