Coffee Review - Colombia Geisha by Green Mountain Coffee
Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2012
Origin: Valle del Cauca growing region, Colombia. Price: $24.99/10 ounces

Blind Assessment: Gently intense, original. Complex, lavender-toned flowers, honey, crisp roasted cocoa nib, sweet orange zest in aroma and cup. Delicate acidity; very smooth, silky/syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant, quietly flavor-saturated finish.

Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Geisha (more properly spelled Gesha). With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha/Geisha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world's most unique coffees. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters is one of the country's leading specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.

Who Should Drink It: A balanced, elegant version of the extravagantly aromatic Gesha profile.
