Blind Assessment: Lyrically balanced, richly spice-toned. Bergamot, wisteria, cocoa nib, sugarcane, guava in aroma and cup. Intoxicatingly sweet structure with delicately bright acidity; buoyant, silky mouthfeel. Resonant, flavor-saturated, very long finish.
Notes: Produced at Acacia Hills Coffee Estate entirely of the Geisha variety of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). This particular sample consists entirely of peaberries, a kind of bean that results when the coffee fruit develops only a single, oval bean rather than the usual pair of flat-sided beans. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. Paradise prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A splendid Tanzania Gesha that mesmerizes with lush, complex spice and deep, pervasive sweetness.
