Blind Assessment: Balanced, complex, classic. Red plum, Nutella, lavender, lemon verbena, fresh-cut cedar in aroma and cup. Gently sweet-tart structure with high-toned acidity; full, viscous mouthfeel. All the flavor notes from the cup, especially red plum and Nutella, carry into a harmonious, integrated finish.
Notes: Produced by Arturo Aguirre of El Injerto Farm entirely of the celebrated Geisha (also spelled Gesha) variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Kakalove Cafe is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A complex Guatemala Geisha that expresses stone fruit and nut-toned chocolate in equal parts, invitingly sweet-tart and very deep.
