Blind Assessment: Delicate, crisply sweet. Dried coconut, baker’s chocolate, candied violet, cedar, nutmeg in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-tart structure; silky mouthfeel. The gently drying finish is carried by notes of chocolate-toned coconut in the short and cedar in the long, with a whisper of sweet candied violet.
Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also Geisha) by farmer Roberto Brenes of Auromar Estate. 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. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-5282 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A crisp, deeply sweet natural-processed Gesha cup: chocolaty, fruit-toned and floral.
