Blind Assessment: Floral- and citrus-toned. Star jasmine, pink grapefruit zest, cocoa nib, agave syrup, lychee in aroma and cup. Bright structure with sweetly citrusy acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. Quiet but inviting finish redolent of pink grapefruit zest and cocoa nib.
Notes: Produced entirely from trees of the Geisha variety of Arabica and processed by the washed anaerobic method (fermentation occurs in a hermetically sealed vessel). GK Coffee is a nano-roastery in Yilan, Taiwan that offers both retail and wholesale coffee. For more information, visit www.gkcoffee.com.tw or email [email protected]
The Bottom Line: A delicately perfumed, citrusy washed-process cup with an elegant floral throughline.
