Blind Assessment: Delicate, deeply sweet, complexly layered. Passion fruit, wild honey, lilac, macadamia nut, tangerine zest in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-tart structure with juicy acidity; crisp, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The richly cocoa-toned finish is alive with tropical fruit and rich aromatic wood notes.
Notes: El Burro Estate is an award-winning coffee farm owned by the Lamastus family in Panama’s famous Boquete growing region. 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 natural-processed version (dried in the whole fruit). Kakalove Cafe is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A vibrant natural-processed Geisha that leads with tropical fruit and sweet-spicy floral notes layered with wild honey and creamy macadamia nut and earthy undertones.
