Blind Assessment: High-toned, floral. Nectarine, lilac, cocoa nib, pistachio brittle, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with bright, juicy acidity; silky-smooth mouthfeel. The cocoa-toned finish is complicated by hints of lilac and cedar.
Notes: Produced by Dota Estate entirely of the celebrated Geisha variety of Arabica, and processed by the honey method, in which the skin is stripped off the coffee fruit, but much of the fruit flesh is left to dry on the bean. Buon Caffe is a specialty coffee roaster and cafe in Taipei. Visit www.buoncaffe.com.tw for more information.
The Bottom Line: A pretty Costa Rica Geisha processed by the honey method. Floral-driven with ballast from cocoa notes.
