Blind Assessment:

Crisply sweet, spice-toned. Candied pistachio, gardenia, cedar, sugar cane, apricot in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with round, gentle acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The understated finish is driven by notes of nut brittle and spicy, deeply sweet flowers.

Notes:

This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of coffees from Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador for Coffee Review’s March 2019 tasting report. Produced entirely from trees of the celebrated Geisha (also spelled Gesha) variety of Arabica. This is a wet-processed or “washed” version, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting and before drying. Blues Brew Coffee is Taipei-based coffee roaster seeking the highest quality coffees for the enjoyment of global coffee-lovers. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/bluesbrewcoffee.

The Bottom Line: An ultra-sweet Peru Geisha cup resonating rich floral and deep nut tones throughout.
