Blind Assessment: Delicately, richly perfumy. Guava, cocoa nib, frankincense, wild honey, lilac in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with bright, vibrant acidity; silky, levitating mouthfeel. The deeply sweet finish centers around guava, cocoa nib and frankincense.
Notes: Produced at Finca Santa Teresa, entirely of the Gesha (also Geisha) variety of Arabica, and processed by the honey method, in which some sweet pulp or fruit flesh (“honey”) is allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. Big Shoulders Coffee is a Chicago artisan roaster that emphasizes a fresh-roasted, no-nonsense approach to fine coffee. Visit www.bigshoulderscoffee.com or call 312-846-1439 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An understated, complex, elegantly aromatic Panama Geisha cup saturated with resiny floral, tropical fruit and honey notes.
