From PT's Co-Founder Jeff Taylor:
“With a passion for farming, a commitment to quality, and a love of coffee and people, José David Garrido founded Mama Cata Estate in the region of Alto Quiel, very near to Boquete, Panama and began the process of producing outstanding, unique coffee from his land in 1997. We are happy to partner with him for the first time and bring you this one of a kind coffee, never before offered to any roaster in the USA, Finca Mama Cata, Lot Toña. A specific selection of multiple varieties is blended to create a unique, spectacular flavor profile.”
In the early 2000’s, when the Geisha varietal was “discovered” by the specialty coffee industry, the Garrido family looked once again to their own small Geisha lot. For the purposes of the Best of Panama, the lot was too small to produce the amount required to compete. In 2005 they created a blend from their Geisha lot and Typica from two other lots. It finished second to the winning coffee from La Esmeralda Estate. The quality of this blend has been adapted and improved over the years along with the modernization and innovation of the rest of the estate.

An exclusive nanolot of peaberries from our Mama Cata Toña Geisha/Typica lot. This light to medium roast coffee features a sweet toffee aroma. When brewed, it has a smooth body and zesty acidity. It possesses notes of dried apricot and orange blossom, with a cocoa powder sweetness. The finish leaves behind a satisfying zing of key lime.
