Blind Assessment: Balanced, complete, yet wildly distinctive. Very sweet-toned aroma: table grape, spicy nut, flowers. All carry into the cup, where a crisp cocoa (dry, nut-toned chocolate) contributes complication and depth. Tart but softly fruit-toned acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Nut and cocoa in particular carry into the finish.
Notes: From trees of the botanical variety "Gesha" or "Geisha" grown on the Mama Cata Estate, named after a beloved and apparently matriarchal maid of an earlier owner of the estate. With its long, boat-shaped beans and distinctive floral and chocolate cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world's most unique coffees. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit
Who Should Drink It: An exhilarating and exceptional variant on the great Gesha cup for the well-heeled aficionado.
