There's a reason behind Geisha's status as one of the most expensive coffees in international auctions - and also why we call it the goddess of all coffees!
The flavor profile features a delicate floral aroma with notes of jasmine and rose followed by a beautiful sweetness that reminds you of papaya, guanábana or red berries. Geisha lands in definite cacao notes thanks to its pleasant caramel aftertaste.
Geisha (a.k.a. Geisha in Colombia), was discovered in Geisha, a forest in Ethiopia that has magically escaped the rampant deforestation of the region. It was brought to Panama in the ’60s and only recently introduced to Colombia - and here, it simply thrives.
Geisha is a delicate plant with elongated bright green leaves.
I tend to search around and "try, try, try" many different kinds of coffees. I ran across this one and tried it and intend to buy more in the future. I really like the fresh taste.
