Blind Assessment: Nuanced, multi-layered, richly sweet. Lavender, roasted cacao nib, salted caramel, sweet aromatic mushroom, a moist foresty hint in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet-savory in structure with bright, juicy acidity; plush, velvety mouthfeel. The finish is resonant and flavor-saturated, fulfilling the promise of the cup well into the long.
Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also spelled Geisha) by Pablo Guerrero. With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. This is a wet-processed or “washed” version, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. The majority of Gesha coffees are grown in the Boquete region of Panama, but there is increased experimentation with this variety throughout Latin America, especially Colombia, where this exceptional version was grown. Dragonfly Coffee is a Boulder, Colorado-based micro-roaster that produces high-quality coffees and supports worthy causes.

The Bottom Line: An exciting Colombia Gesha cup that covers all the aromatic and gustatory bases: spicy florals notes, sweetly savory earth tones, umami sensations and rich sweetness throughout.
