Roasty-sweet, floral-toned. Honeysuckle, date, scorched birch, dark chocolate, Meyer lemon zest in aroma and cup. Crisp, juicy acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Chocolaty finish with undertones of lemon and honeysuckle.
Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also Geisha) by Adam and Rachel Overton. 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. 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. It is processed by the washed method (fruit skin and pulp removed before drying). GK Coffee is a nano-roastery in Yilan, Taiwan, that offers both retail and wholesale coffee.

A surprisingly bright dark-roasted Ethiopia Gesha with a throughline of pretty florals and rich chocolate notes.
