Pungent, deep, spicy. Milk chocolate, Concord grape, passion flower, aromatic sandalwood, a hint of savory black truffle in aroma and cup. Tart, juicy acidity; syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Rich, spice-toned, slightly savory finish.

Notes:

Geisha Coffee Roaster is a Florida-based Internet retailer offering a wide selection of coffees from around the world. The company has family ties to coffee farms in Panama; nevertheless, the company name should not be confused with the Geisha or Gesha coffee variety, the particularly costly, distinguished variety of Arabica also associated with Panama. Visit www.geishacoffee.com or call 407-409-8704 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy mulled wine or similar beverages that merge the tart, the sweet and the savory may particularly enjoy this unusual blend.
