Deep, floral, flavor-saturated. Complex flowers (lavender, violet, more), blood orange, cocoa, a subtle suggestion of Highland whisky in aroma and cup. Round, tartly juicy acidity; plush, velvety mouthfeel. Flowers, orange, cocoa, whisky all carry deep into a finish that rings on and on.
Coffee from trees of the botanical variety Gesha (also Geisha) grown on Price Peterson’s 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 cacao-toned cup, the Gesha continues one of the world’s most unique coffees, and the Esmeralda versions remain among the most authentic. This is a dry-processed or “natural” version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale specialty roaster active in Sacramento, California since 2005.

Who Should Drink It
Anyone who can afford this extraordinary coffee: elegant yet intense; resonant, intricate. The whisky suggestion, very clear and pleasing yet exhilaratingly clean, is particularly impressive.
