Very sweet, deeply and subtly complex. Lush night flowers, aromatic woods, tangerine, mint-toned cocoa in aroma and cup. Richly nuanced acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. A savory tendency is particularly noticeable in a resonant, gently drying finish.
Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also spelled Geisha). 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. 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. Based in the San Diego area, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is a retailer and wholesaler that focuses on organic and socially responsible coffees; it was awarded the “2012 Roaster of the Year” title from Roast Magazine.

Who Should Drink It
Those who can afford a finely executed dried-in-the-fruit version of the great Gesha profile.
