We have just returned from a month in Costa Rica where all of our friends drink\" 1820 Special Reserve \". Being unable to purchase Elida Estate there ( made a mistake not taking it with us ) we drank 1820. There is NO comparison to Elida Estate . We really missed our morning cups of Elida !
I recently tried this coffee for the first time. It’s sweet and full of flavor with subtle complexity. Love it! Panama produces my favorite taste profile, and these are premium beans. One suggestion: the taste profile is very sensitive to the brewing process. Use a consistent and precise brewing time & temp. It’s critical to achieve the best flavor every time. Amazing coffee!
