Exuberant, delicately spice-toned. Sandalwood, roasted cacao nib, strawberry, roasted almond, tea rose in aroma and cup. Bright, juicy, intensely floral-toned acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The flavorful finish leads with notes of cacao nib and strawberry in the short, consolidating to sandalwood and rose in an impressively ringing, persistent long.
Produced by La Palma & El Tucan, an innovative, quality- and sustainability-focused Colombia producer, from trees of the celebrated Gesha (also Geisha) variety of Arabica. This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a tasting of women-produced coffees for Coffee Review‘s June 2017 tasting report. Based in the San Diego area, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is a retailer and wholesaler focused on organic and socially responsible coffees; it was awarded the “2012 Micro-Roaster of the Year” title from Roast Magazine.

An almost shockingly original Gesha cup, intense, surprising and intricate in its layered aromatics, brisk yet sweet in structure.
