Blind Assessment: Complex, multi-layered, richly aromatic. Blood orange, wisteria, black sage, dried apricot, caramelized walnut in aroma and cup. Sweetly bright structure with vibrant, balanced acidity; lively, silky-smooth mouthfeel. The resonant finish centers around notes of dried apricot and black sage.
Notes: Produced by Feliciano Huayllas Candia of Kukipata Belen Farm entirely of the admired Gesha (also spelled Geisha) variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). This coffee took 11th place in the 2021 Peru Cup of Excellence Competition. SkyTop Coffee is a USDA certified-organic specialty coffee roaster based in Manlius, New York.

The Bottom Line: A high-toned, spice-driven, very floral Peru Gesha cup. A good value for this impressive, rare, usually expensive coffee variety.
