In 5 years of partnership, this is the first Geisha we've seen from Herkimer-- but seeing how they hand-pick all of their coffees through close relationships with farmers, we knew that this coffee would be a true masterpiece. As with all coffees of this caliber, it's extremely limited-lot, and we felt lucky to secure a special batch just for Bean Box customers.
Geisha beans are known all over the world for their rarity, their soft, balanced notes of florals and fruits, and their seemingly endless flavor complexity: tasting notes that go on for miles. We call Geisha the “cashmere sweater of coffees”, like a cashmere sweater, this brew doesn’t come cheap, but its warmth, coziness, and quality are beyond compare.
One sip of Herkimer's take on the Geisha, and you'll understand the hype. The aroma is to die for-- straight-up sugary fruit, like hard candy. The coffee is just as sweet, syrupy and lush-- we taste evolving flavors of honey and pineapple, mandarin orange, unsweetened iced tea. The finish resolves into a creamy cocoa, beer foam hoppiness, and yes, a touch of pine. The finish is so mellow, it's almost gauzy, and leaves a pleasant, buttery texture behind. Wrap yourself, or someone you love, in this "cashmere of coffee"-- a little luxury for your morning.
incredibly soft and perfectly balanced Gesha with bright aromas of honeydew, candied orange, and fresh cocoa. Flavors of sweet pineapple juice, watermelon, and ripe pear are supported by hints of fresh hops and pine. Finca El Platanillo is a family run farm in operation since 1977.

"This was absolutely stunning. No matter where you were, if you closed your eyes, you were sipping it on a porch on a rainy morning."
