  • Juliette Red Ninety Plus Gesha Estate Panama

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: October 2013
Origin: Silla Del Pando, Volcan, Panama. Price: KRW 35,000/100 grams

Blind Assessment: Juicy, extravagant, deep. Strawberry, port wine, crisp cedar, flowers, vanilla-toned orange in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart, lively acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but persists in a sweet, citrusy finish.

Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also spelled Geisha). With its elegantly elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world's most unique coffees. This is a dry-processed or "natural" version of the Gesha, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. This particular Gesha is produced on the Ninety Plus Gesha Estates. Namusairo is a boutique café and artisan roaster founded in Seoul, South Korea in 2002.

Who Should Drink It: Superb structure, pungently deep but exhilarating aroma and flavor in this fine variation on the rare Panama Gesha profile.
