Blind Assessment: Delicately rich, floral- and cocoa-toned. Baking chocolate, star jasmine, blackberry, lime zest, brown sugar in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet with vibrant, round acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant finish centers around notes of baking chocolate, jasmine and brown sugar.
Notes: Produced at Hala Tree farm entirely of the celebrated Geisha variety of Arabica and processed by the conventional washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Hala Tree Coffee is a family-owned coffee farm in the heart of the Kona coffee belt, overlooking historic Kealakekua Bay. The 100% Kona Coffee produced on this USDA organic-certified property is processed and roasted on site to ensure quality. For more information, visit www.halatreecoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A stately and balanced Kona Geisha cup, paradoxically both deep-toned and delicate, with a particularly lush mouthfeel.
