Blind Assessment: High-toned, delicate, confident. Star-jasmine, cocoa nib, blood orange, black sage, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with poised and elegantly bright acidity; very smooth, silky mouthfeel. Sandalwood notes contribute resonance to the floral-toned finish.
Notes: Produced by Wilder Lasso of Bella Alejandría Farm entirely of the Gesha variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed anaerobic method, in which the fermentation step occurs in a hermetically sealed vessel before the beans are washed and dried. Mostra Coffee is a women-, minority-, veteran-, and immigrant-owned micro-roaster based in north county San Diego. For more information, visit www.mostracoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A complex, nuanced Colombia Gesha cup processed by an elaborate variation on the traditional washed method.
