Delicate but rich; shimmeringly complex. Meyer lemon, jasmine, honey, walnut in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet acidity; silky mouthfeel. Surprisingly deep, flavor-saturated finish.

Notes:

Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also spelled Geisha). With its elegantly elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, citrusy, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. This particular Gesha is produced on the Ninety Plus Gesha Estates. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.
