SUMAVA 'GEISHA' – COSTA RICA

$32.00

A white honey Geisha that’s been years in the making. Direct Trade partner, Francisco Mena is the preeminent source for coffee processing in the West Valley. Having spent years working with small specialty growers to bring their own Geishas to full potential, Francisco had never grown his own lot… until recently.

After five years of dedication to a small plot by the name of “Rejolla,” Francisco has cultivated his own Geisha crop from seed. Geishas are very delicate, and so they were strategically sown in a small valley (“Rejolla” translates to “little valley”) not only to protect from the wind, but slow maturation. Pretty savvy agronomy to help increase yield and improve cup complexity.

Geisha is perhaps the most famous and sought-after varietal in coffee. Originating from the Gori Gesha forest in Ethiopia, it is fruity, floral and wildly aromatic. The micro climate in Naranjo, West Valley, and Francisco’s masterful processing create the sweetness of a key lime pie. To emphasize its decadent and citrus flavour, we roast on the lighter end.

Sumava Geisha is a treat in every sense, for all of your senses. Available in very limited quantities.

DELIVERED FRESH:

We guarantee a fresh specialty delivery within seven days of the roast date.

GROUND COFFEE ORDERS:
We only offer a universal medium grind suitable for Auto Drip, French Press, Pourover and Aeropress. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate other grind requests, including espresso.
