Description

The Geisha varietal is one of the noblest coffee varieties of the world. This relatively rare species is cultivated mainly in Panama, specifically on the La Esmeralda farm where the highest graded beans sell for several hundred euros per kilo.
We have been lucky enough to bring our Geisha to Berlin through our long term friendships in Costa Rica.
Our Geisha come from a very small farm called Colorado at the foot of the Poas volcano, which is run by the two brothers Roberto and Daniel. It is important for the farmers to have sustainable and heterogeneous buildings on their farm, so that the coffee can grow and live together with limes and dairy cattle in the same area.
Roberto and Daniel have transported our Geisha cherries from their Farm Colorado to our good friends at Hacienda Sonora, where the coffee is processed with great care and know-how. This coffee is processed at a Natural which does not require water for drying making it even more sustainable.
As a result, all the sweet, floral and exotic aromas can be found in high concentration within the bean. These fruity aromas of kiwi and red grapes are joined by notes of jasmine and marshmallow, which together form the exquisite overall aroma of the coffee. These notes are highlighted in our roasting style to give the right space to all taste nuances.
