A couple of years back we joined forces with our mates at Toby's Estate to create a couple of experimental 'OkTobyfest' brews. So, with a proven track record as good drinking buddies, beer and coffee team up again.
After an initial tasting with Toby's Estate, together we selected 'Panama Finca Santa Teresa honey-processed Gesha' as our beans of choice. While the name's a mouthful, the resulting brew - Panama Mosaic - is much easier to swallow. It's got a malty toasty biscuit backbone with a dry coffee finish. Think cold-drip coffee's subtlety over full-throttle espresso. There's some moderate bitterness and spiciness coming through from the hops and beans, and it goes easy on the carbonation. Put it in a coffee cup and you could almost fool your boss.
