Blind Assessment: Delicate, richly sweet, floral-toned. Star jasmine, raspberry, cocoa nib, maple syrup, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Bright, sweet-tart structure with juicy acidity; plush, satiny mouthfeel. The long finish centers around deep floral and bright berry tones, grounded by cocoa nib.
Notes: 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 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: An intensely aromatic, yet delicate, natural-processed Geisha from Ethiopia: juicy, floral, berry-toned.
