Cupping Notes: Pina Colada, Rose, Strawberry, Blood Orange, and Passionfruit
Want to support women in coffee? Here is a cocktail you won’t want to miss, a geisha produced by María Omaira Mesa on her 5-acre farm called El Cuadradero! We were thrilled at the flavors of this lot, from piña colada to rose, strawberry, and blood orange, and passionfruit. Its a wonderful harmony of cultivar specific flavors, unconventional processing methods and terroir. The seeds are mostly oblong in typical Gesha style, and are nicely sorted into about 80% screens 16-18. The density is quite modest, surprisingly. Between this and the low moisture the coffee will likely appreciate a gentler approach, at least during the early stages of roasting.
