Floral scents, tropical fruit, intense sweetness: This cup is like sipping a bouquet of flowers. The Gesha cultivar is an old coffee type from Ethiopia that was brought to an experimental coffee garden in Costa Rica years ago as a specimen sample. It was distributed to a few farms for testing on small plots, but not much was thought of it until one of these, Esmeralda in Panama, separated it from the other cultivars and entered it in the national competition. It was so outrageously different, with fruited and floral character like a Yirga Cheffe coffee from half a world away. Now that the word is out, other small farms that received some of the seed have tried to separate their Gesha coffee as well, as is the case with this coffee from Guatemala. Great sweetness abounds. The true magic of this coffee happens as it cools in your cup. You must experience the flavor note changes. It is Stravinsky in a cup!
