Johan & Nyström – Panama Plum Rum Thief

Panama Plum Rum Thief from Johan & Nyström is like Panama Pineapple Thief “a coffee you will never forget”. It’s sweet, syrupy and reminds you of dried plums.

Information and recipe for the coffee:

Origin: Panama
Variety: Red Catuai
Farm: Elida Estate
Region: Alto Quiel, Boquete
Process: Honey
Altitude: 1670-1890 meters above sea level.

Pour Over:

17g coffee (grind setting 20E at Baratza Sette 270, medium)
225g of filtered water
40g bloom 40 seconds
90 degrees Celsius

1) 40g bloom for 40 seconds, stir with a bamboo stirrer to get all coffee moistened.
3) 225g water in a circular flow (this includes 40g water blooming). This including 40 second blooming, your timing should be on 1 minute and 55 seconds.


Espro Travel Press:

19g coffee (grind setting 26B at Baratza Sette 270)
284g of filtered water
94 degrees Celsius

1) After pouring both the coffee and the water, stir the coffee 10 times. I suggest you use a bamboo stirrer. Avoid sharp objects.
2) Screw the press and let steep for 4 minutes
3) Press slowly, if the press gets stuck, just lift the press and try again. It is normal.
4) Serve or seal the lid.

Review: The coffee is very good, unlike Panama Pineapple Thief, this is a better “fika” coffee and is very good on its own.

The coffee is very sweet and it depends mainly on the process it has been treated on. Honey-process gives a very syrupy taste to the coffee, almost all the honey-coffees gets this character, of course, they are all unique in themselves. Honey is definitely one of my favorite processes (natural is, of course, my number 1).

The sweet plum tones emerge as usual after 60 degrees Celsius. When I mean “after”, I mean 60 … 59 … 58 etc. I recommend this unbelievable cool coffee to all coffee lovers, a beautiful gem from my favorite plantation in the world.
