Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned and honeyish with peach and floral notes balanced by tart fruit: cranberry, mandarin orange. Silky mouthfeel. The peach and floral sweetness dominates in the short finish, though a bracing, drying astringency that has been tracking through the cup all along emerges clearly in the long.
Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Geisha (also spelled Gesha) by “The Brothers Osorio," Benjamin and Efrain. With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral, citrus and cocoa cup, the Geisha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world's most unique coffees. Roasted at PT’s Coffee, where the motto is “without the love, it’s just coffee.” Visit
Who Should Drink It: Paradoxical excitement – honeyish sweetness supporting dry, tart fruit – in a lightish-roasted version of the celebrated Geisha variety.
