Best of Panama Coffee Event, 2003

Way back in the past I was a judge at the Panama Cupping Competition: Here are my photos and notes!

This was my second year as a judge in the Best of Panama cupping competition… and here is the esteemed panel of coffee folks that I had the pleasure to cup with. Overall, the panel was mostly U.S. but we did have Bolivian, Japanese, Costa Rican and Panamanian judges -oh, and Maine too.

The Results of our efforts as judges in the 2003 Best of Panama Competition:
