Deeply rich, sweetly tart, complex. Orange marmalade, lilac, roasted cacao nib, myrrh, ripe passionfruit in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-tart acidity; delicate but full, satiny mouthfeel. Notes of orange marmalade and lilac characterize the sweetly dry finish in the short, while the long settles into pretty hints of myrrh.
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.

A nuanced, sweetly-tart Geisha with a confident structure and bold fruit- and flower-driven aromatics.
