Blind Assessment: Delicately bright, resonantly floral. Narcissus, cardamom, honey, bergamot, marjoram in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweetly tart structure with vibrant acidity; lively, silky mouthfeel. The long, flavor-laden finish leads with notes of bittersweet citrus and narcissus in the short; cardamom and honey resurface in the long.
Notes: Produced from trees of the celebrated Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Geisha (also spelled Gesha) by farmer Roberto Brenes of Auromar Estate. With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Geisha/Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees. This is a dry-processed or “natural” version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Now based in Henderson, Nevada, Dragonfly Coffee was named 2019 Micro-Roaster of the Year by Roast magazine. Visit https://dragonflycoffeeroasters.com or call 303-579-2154 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A vibrantly expressive, nuanced natural-processed Geisha cup with spice-toned floral and complex fruit notes throughout.
