Blind Assessment: Delicate, vibrant, richly tart. Passionfruit, roasted cacao nib, sandalwood, star jasmine, bergamot zest in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart in structure with juicy, bright acidity; buoyant, silky mouthfeel. The long, flavor-saturated finish is redolent with notes of passionfruit, star jasmine and cacoa nib.
Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Geisha (also spelled Gesha) by the Lamastus family at Elida Estate. With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Geisha/Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. This is a dry-processed or “natural” version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Dragonfly Coffee is a Boulder, Colorado-based micro-roaster that produces high-quality coffees and supports worthy causes.

The Bottom Line : An exuberant fruit- and floral-driven natural-processed Geisha, vibrant and engaging, with an intriguing spice-toned complication.
