Panama Horqueta - Don Mariano honey
Don Mariano Coffee was named after Cafetalera Los González owner Mr. Mariano González. Mr. Mariano is a passionate coffee grower that has been taking care of his farm for the last 60 years. He is also a dear member of the Boquete community.
Mr. Mariano, encouraged by his 3 daughters, joined the Specialty Coffee Association of Panama last year. He participated for the first time in the 2016 Best of Panama Competition and won 5th place in the Natural Traditionals Category. At Cafetalera Los González we are very excited that Mr. Mariano’s lifetime work can now be enjoyed in other countries.
Cafetalera Los González is located in the region of Horqueta in the Boquete Highlands and grows mostly high elevation Catuai grown at an average of 1,600 meters above sea level. It has been owned by the González family since 1920.
This year we won the number 6 lot ; a super clean, honey processed Catuai. With aroma and flavours of honey, jasmine, star fruit and cinnamon. soft citric acids and a smooth mouthfeel. Overall delicate and well balanced. Cupping score during this competition: 87.747
