Panama Carmen Estate

We have a limited amount of Panama Auction Lot '06 - Carmen Estate from the Best of Panama Competition. This was one of the 3 coffees we sold as a set earlier this year. I found out there was a bag still unclaimed so I jumped on it (well, figuratively).  It's expensive. We paid 14.35 per pound in the auction for it, if that gives you some idea! One another note, we are entering the period we refer to as the Christmas Jamboree of 7-Day-A-Week Order Packin' Fun! Well ... at least we have good coffee to get us through it, sigh. -Tom
