Bean Box Breakdown

Panama Carmen is coffee royalty, and won a Good Food Award for Kuma in 2014. This year’s batch is a worthy successor to the throne, with its sparkly fruit flavor and honey-smooth texture. It’s good to be the King.

Kuma Coffee Story

Bright and fruit-forward, this honey-processed coffee from Panama carries notes of blackberry, plum, and passionfruit.

"An enjoyable, bright, and fruit-forward coffee. We could really taste the blackberry. It seemed like something you might drink on a tropical vacation - a nice change from our usual wintry dark roasts." (4 out of 5)

"Nice and balanced coffee. I am still learning to pick up on different notes, but I can certainly taste some of the passion fruit note. Nice level of acidity and sweetness, with a strong and delicious aroma after ground. (prepared on a clever dripper with 3 mins brew). " (4 out of 5)
