Blind Assessment:

Delicate, deeply sweet, complexly layered. Passionfruit, roasted cacao nib, frankincense, lilac, almond in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-tart structure with juicy acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. The richly cocoa-toned finish is redolent of tropical fruit and fragrant aromatic wood.

Notes:

Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also Geisha) by the Hartmann family. With its generally 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” 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. Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale specialty roaster active in Sacramento, California since 2005. Committed to sourcing, roasting and brewing the finest coffees, Temple features coffee from distinguished single estates and cooperatives around the world.

The Bottom Line: An exciting natural-processed Geisha that leads with juicy fruit notes and deeply sweet florals, all wrapped in frankincense and cocoa.
