Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso produced as a “ristretto” 25ml (.85-ounce) shot using a Nespresso capsule espresso brewer with whole milk heated using a conventional steam wand. Crisply sweet, floral-toned. Lilac, plum, almond, cocoa nib, lemon verbena in aroma and small cup. Silky-smooth mouthfeel; crisp finish with notes of cocoa nib and lemon verbena. In cappuccino format, cocoa notes are further elevated and sweet herb notes provide bright ballast.
Notes: Produced at Hacienda La Esmeralda entirely of the Geisha variety of Arabica, and presented in a Nespresso-compatible capsule. This is a wet-processed or “washed” version (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Difference Coffee aims to present only the finest of the world’s coffees as determined by green coffee competitions and other measures of distinction, tactfully roasted and presented in capsules compatible with Nespresso capsule brewing systems.

The Bottom Line: One of the world’s most distinguished Geisha-variety coffees offered in Nespresso-compatible format — bright, floral, rich, deep.
