Green Mountain Coffee
Panama La Esmeralda Geisha
|Roaster Location:||Waterbury, Vermont|
|Coffee Origin:||Boquete growing region, western Panama|
|Review Date:||December 2006|
Very sweet-toned, exquisitely balanced aroma with floral, candied lemon and sweet herb notes. In the cup intense, tartly sweet acidity and buoyant mouthfeel with white wine and continued sweet lemon notes. The barest hint of chocolate in the cup blooms with soft explicitness in the surprisingly sweet finish. The cup stiffens ever so slightly as it cools.
This very rare (and costly) coffee is the sixth in Green Mountain's "Special Reserve" series of select small lots of seasonally available coffees. Geisha refers to the botanical variety of tree, directly descended from Ethiopian stock, that produced this coffee and which doubtless accounts for its unusual, floral- and lemon-toned character, quite atypical for Latin American coffees. Keurig/Green Mountain, formerly Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, pioneered single-serve capsule brewing in the United States with its Keurig brewing system, and remains one of the country’s leading large specialty roasters, offering a particularly wide-ranging variety of origins and roast styles.
