Blind Assessment: Juicy, fruit-driven, balanced. Raspberry jam, dark chocolate, narcissus, caramel, cedar in aroma and cup. Tart-leaning structure with winy acidity; impressively satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The crisply sweet-tart finish centers around raspberry and chocolate suggestions.
Notes: Produced at San Andreas Estate entirely of the famous Geisha (also spelled Gesha) variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed method. Omine Coffee is a new label offered by the soymilk manufacturer Yonho, based in Taipei. Visit https://www.facebook.com/yonho/ for more information.
The Bottom Line: A fruit-toned wash-processed Guatemala Geisha with pretty floral and deep chocolate notes enveloping a berry throughline.
