Blind Assessment: Crisp, elegantly sweet, rich-toned. Dried mango, hazelnut butter, hibiscus, fresh-cut cedar, brown sugar in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet-tart structure with vibrant acidity; viscous, satiny mouthfeel. The finish leads with dried mango and hazelnut in the short, hibiscus and cedar returning in the long.
Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also Geisha) by farmer Roberto Brenes of Finca La Aurora. 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. This is a dry-processed or “natural” Gesha, 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.

The Bottom Line : Tropical fruit- and spice-toned aromatic wood characterize this uniquely sweet, engagingly tart natural-processed Geisha cup.
