This lovely Gesha honey cup is sweet with sweet aroma. A bouquet of lychee announces its arrivals as soon as the grounds are wetted. At first sip, a sweet tropical fruit zest shines up front. As the cup cools, the notes of strawberry begin to permeate. The mouthfeel is clean, and transitions into a brisk tea-like finish.

Every Cup of Coffee Has a Story
Gesha is an old cultivar from Ethiopia that was brought to an experimental coffee garden as a specimen sample. It was distributed to a few farms for testing on small plots. Not much was thought of the cultivar until a farm in Panama entered it to a national competition. Its fruited and floral character was outrageously different, resulting in other farms separating their Gesha coffee as well, as is the case here. The results are always a bit different: the cultivar “expresses" itself differently in terms of cup flavors at each location, influenced by weather, soil, and altitude. Our Gesha is no different. It expresses the region of Tarrazu and the non-traditional processing method chosen by Luis Fernando Prado of Cerro Dragon Micro Mill.
