Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, deeply aromatic. Strawberry guava, cocoa nib, wild honey, marjoram, lilac in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with richly tart acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Long, lingering finish with strawberry guava and cocoa nib in front and wild honey and marjoram undertones.
Notes: Produced by the Herrera brothers at Granja La Esperanza 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. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit www.ptscoffee.com or call 888-678-JAVA for more information.
The Bottom Line: A multi-layered, tropical-fruit toned cup processed by the honey method — deep, rich, delicate, engaging.
