Blind Assessment: Richly fruit-toned, cocoa-driven. Bing cherry, lychee, tangerine, cocoa nib, magnolia in aroma and cup. Very sweet, gently tart structure with juicy acidity; plush, viscous mouthfeel. Resonantly integrated, fruity and cocoa-toned finish.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 14 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2022. Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also spelled Geisha) by Adam and Rachel Overton. With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. Although the Gesha variety originated in Ethiopia, it was “discovered” by the coffee world in 2004 growing in Boquete, Panama, and Panama continues to dominate the expanding world of Gesha. This particular version, however, is the outcome of efforts to commercialize Gesha in the region from which it originally came. It is processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Corvus particularly focuses on processing methods and selective harvesting, which results in small, seasonal micro-lots of uniquely sweet, vibrant, and clean flavor profiles.

The Bottom Line: A decadent fruit-centered medley of stone fruit, tropical fruit, citrus and crisp cocoa nib with exceptionally vibrant acidity and mouthfeel.
