Blind Assessment: Gently sweet-tart, floral-toned. Pomegranate, lilac, pistachio, orange zest, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet-tart structure with delicately bright acidity; silky-smooth mouthfeel. The tart-leaning finish leads with notes of pomegranate and orange zest, supported by oak and pistachio.
Notes: Produced from trees of the admired botanical variety Gesha (also Geisha) by Adam and Rachel Overton. Although the Gesha variety originated in Ethiopia, it was “discovered” by the coffee world in 2004 growing in Boquete, Panama, and Panama continues to dominate the expanding world of Gesha. This particular version, however, is the outcome of efforts to commercialize Gesha in the region from which it originally came. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Taster’s Coffee is a nano-roaster based in new Taipei City, Taiwan. Visit www.tasterscoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A quietly confident natural-processed Ethiopia Geisha cup — invigoratingly tart, balanced by sweet nut and aromatic wood notes.
