Blind Assessment: Delicately fruit- and floral-toned. Magnolia, apricot, amber, cocoa nib, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart with gently bright acidity; vibrantly silky mouthfeel. Resonant finish that leads with notes of magnolia and apricot, rounding to cocoa and amber in the long.
Notes: Composed entirely of the celebrated Geisha variety of Arabica, and processed by a hybrid yellow honey method, in which skins are removed, but a thin layer of the sticky fruit flesh is allowed to remain on the beans during a brief fermentation step, during which mandarin peel was added to the ferment tank.

The Bottom Line: A yellow honey-processed Colombia Geisha with notes of stone fruit, rich florals, and cocoa nib throughout, and an especially pretty mouthfeel, silky and subtle.
