Blind Assessment: Floral, spice-toned. Jasmine, pink peppercorn, honey, apricot, myrrh in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with vivacious acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of pink peppercorn and honey.
Notes: Produced at Finca Santa Maria entirely of the celebrated Gesha (also spelled Geisha) variety of Arabica, and processed by the honey method, in which some sweet pulp or fruit flesh (“honey”) is allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. Finca Santa Maria is certified with the Con Manos de Mujer seal, verifying that it was produced by women farmers.

The Bottom Line: A floral, spice-driven Gesha cup from Colombia with suggestions of stone fruit, deep florals, and an especially engaging acidity.
