Panama Boquete Kotowa Gesha Natural
|Roaster Location:||Torrington, Connecticut|
|Coffee Origin:||Boquete growing region, western Panama|
|Est. Price:||$45.00/8 ounces|
|Review Date:||December 2015|
Intricately fruity and richly savory. Plumeria-like flowers, dried hibiscus, cinnamon bark, almond in aroma and cup. Quietly tart acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Floral, nutty, sweetly resonant finish.
With its bold, boat-shaped beans and distinctive floral and crisply cacao-toned cup, the Gesha (also Geisha) variety of Arabica continues to produce some 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. Giv COFFEE is dedicated to three goals: to provide quality coffee, to provide a fair price to farmers, and to give back to those in need. Giv COFFEE donates two dollars of every retail bag of coffee it sells. Visit www.givcoffee.com or call 860-874-5301 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
Those who value the intense, complexly nut-toned fruit of a more savory style of natural or dried-in-the-fruit Gesha.
