Blind Assessment: Richly aromatic, complex. Star jasmine, cocoa nib, bergamot, apricot, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Delicately bright structure with vibrantly juicy acidity; silky, viscous mouthfeel. Resonant, long flavor-laden finish with notes of star jasmine and cocoa nib supported by apricot undertones.
Notes: Coffee from trees of the botanical variety Geisha (also Gesha) grown on Hacienda La Esmeralda in Panama first introduced this extraordinary variety of Arabica to the world. With its bold, boat-shaped beans and distinctive floral and crisply cocoa-toned cup, the Geisha/Gesha continues to be one of the world’s most celebrated and sought-after coffee varieties, and the Esmeralda versions remain among the most authentic. This is a wash-processed version. Quartet Kaffe is an artisan roastery in Taiwan founded in 2018, dedicated to pursuing coffee performance art and offering unique specialty coffee.

The Bottom Line: A lush, rich-toned, yet delicately perfumed washed Geisha cup with exhilarating acidity.
