Blind Assessment: Sweetly floral and spice-toned, delicate. Lilac, myrrh, cocoa nib, pink peppercorn, honey in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweetly tart structure with delicately vibrant acidity; very full, syrupy mouthfeel. Cocoa- and floral-toned finish.
Notes: Produced from the trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Geisha (also spelled Gesha) by the Lamastus family at Elida 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. Processed by the honey method, in which some fruit flesh (“honey”) is allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. Bona Kafo is a Taiwan-based specialty coffee roaster.

The Bottom Line: A sweetly subtle, nuanced Geisha cup processed by the honey method at Panama’s famed Elida Estate.
