Blind Assessment: High-toned, balanced, richly sweet-tart. Dried apricot, star jasmine, cocoa nib, caramel, star anise in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with juicy, engaging acidity; very syrupy mouthfeel. The cocoa-toned finish is supported by notes of star jasmine and apricot.
Notes: Coffee from trees of the botanical variety Geisha (also Gesha) grown on Price Peterson’s Hacienda La Esmeralda in Panama first introduced this extraordinary variety of Arabica to the world. This is a wet-processed or “washed” version, meaning the fruit skin and pulp were removed from the beans immediately after harvesting but before drying. Founded in 2013, modcup coffee focuses on fresh roasting and distinctive natural-processed coffees. Visit modcup.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A pretty washed Panama Gesha cup evokes tropical flowers and ripe stone fruit, with lyrically bright, balanced acidity.
