Blind Assessment: Delicately fruit-forward, multi-layered, complex. Dark chocolate, blackberry jam, macadamia nut, honey, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with winy acidity; very full, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Fruit-toned finish with deep, lasting chocolate undertones.
Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also Geisha) by farmer Roberto Brenes of Finca La Aurora. The Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit).

The Bottom Line: A delicately intense natural-processed Panama Geisha cup: exciting, unique, aromatically compelling.
