This special limited edition Guatemala Geisha is a new varietal we have added to our suite of coffees. It's from the San Marcos Department of Guatemala and is an exciting addition to this farm. This coffee is grown organically, wet processed, then dried on raised beds. They are located at ~1600 masl (meters above sea level).
A varietal is a type of coffee, similar to the many varieties of apples (Granny, Honey Crisp, Red Delicious). Geisha is one of those types and has been growing in popularity because of its sweet, floral notes. The plant itself is from Ethiopia and has become highly sought after.
We had a lot of fun trying to find the perfect roast for this complex coffee. After many sample roasts and cuppings, we settled on a medium to highlight the beautiful notes of hibiscus, pink grapefruit and subtle hint of marcona almonds. Enjoy this complex and fun Geisha (pronounced Ge-sha).
