Blind Assessment:

Evaluated as espresso. Bright, juicy, tropical. Pineapple, passion fruit, rose-like flowers, musk, a backgrounded dark chocolate in aroma and small cup. Satiny mouthfeel. Chocolate and tart fruit carry into a richly drying finish. Crisp, still juicy, and deeply and subtly nuanced in three parts milk.

Notes:

From trees of the Geisha (also spelled Gesha) variety planted on the slopes of Volcan Baru in the Boquete growing region of Panama at elevations between 5,000 and 5,700 feet, where trees of this celebrated variety are said to have first been established in Panama, brought from Costa Rica in 1898 by Don Enrique Vasquez. With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty, cup, the Geisha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s unique coffees. Wei Chuan Foods Corporation is an international food-science corporation. This coffee is a production of its specialty beverages research and development program.
