Delicate, bright, sweetly tart. Honey, walnut, hibiscus, red currant, cinnamon in aroma and cup. Intense, fruity acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The crisp, resonant finish centers around tartly floral hibiscus, supported by bittersweet walnut notes with a hint of cinnamon-like spice.
Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Gesha (also Geisha) by farmer Roberto Brenes of Auromar Estate. With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world‰۪s most unique coffees. This is a dry-processed or ‰ÛÏnatural‰ Gesha, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or ‰ÛÏwashed‰ coffees.åÊ
The Bottom Line: A deeply engaging, complex yet balanced coffee with an impressive combination of finesse and power.
