Blind Assessment: Dried mulberry, lemon verbena, apple blossom, cocoa nib, wild honey in aroma and cup. Sweet, high-toned structure with fruity acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Cocoa- and mulberry-driven finish.
Notes: Produced by Felipe Sardi & Elisa María Madriñan at La Palma Y El Tucán farm entirely of the Gesha (also spelled Geisha) variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Founded in 1995 by Brooke McDonnell and Helen Russell, Equator Coffees operates retail stores in the San Francisco Bay Area and provides coffee to hundreds of wholesale accounts.

The Bottom Line: A berry- and citrus-driven natural-processed Colombia Gesha with a deep cocoa nib backbone and pretty florals on top.
