We couldn’t wait to share this Colombian coffee with you! Our friend Scott Richardson at Herkimer got his hands on a rare, natural process Colombian Gesha. In 5 years of partnership with Scott, this is only the second Gesha we’ve seen (and the first one was a sell-out hit last year). Colombia Copalito Gesha sits next to our COE winner as one of the best Colombian cups we’ve ever tasted. Lively flavors of tropical fruit punch, watermelon, and strawberry define this creamy roast, with a delicate honey sweetness and a pillowy-soft body. The finish is long and clean. A sip of pure coffee delight.
Colombia Copalito Gesha comes from the mountains of Huila, the country’s coffee-growing mecca. Huila coffees are truly exceptional, distinctive for their sweetness and sparkling acidity, notes of caramel and fruit, and delicate profiles. Turns out, it’s one of the perfect places to grow Gesha coffee, a varietal that’s prized for its flavor complexity and lush, refined fruit flavors. We call Gesha the “cashmere sweater of coffees”, because a luxurious coffee-drinking experience, with warmth, coziness, and quality that are beyond compare. Among coffee fans, the Gesha varietal is one of the most coveted coffees in the world— and with just one sip of the candy-like Colombia Copalito Gesha, you’ll believe all the hype.
Sweet, lush, and sugary, this coffee thinks it’s a watermelon jolly rancher. With big notes of tropical fruit, fresh berries, and honey-drizzled finish, this delicate roast is a unicorn of Colombian coffee. Reserve a bag of Herkimer’s limited Colombia Copalito Gesha, and wrap yourself, or someone you love, in the “cashmere of coffee”: a sweet little luxury for your morning.
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This was by far the most interesting coffee that I've tasted in months. It reminded me of fruit punch. I can detect watermelon and strawberry. It also had a "juicy" mouthfeel. I then added a little sugar and WOW! Very nice.|
