If you've never had a natural processed Gesha coffee before, you're in for a real treat! Thanks to our friends at Caffe Ladro, we've secured a small amount of El Manzano Gesha, this year's extraordinary microlot from Cup-of-Excellence-winner Emilio Lopez Diaz. When naturally processed, the already sweet and delicate nature of the Gesha varietal explodes with tropical fruit flavors, wrapped up in the characteristic soft, silky body. El Salvador El Manzano Gesha is clean, bright, and lively, with a big pulpy mouthfeel like fresh pineapple juice and a sparkly tartness like cranberry, pomegranate, a hint of rosy cantaloupe. Flavors ease into a floral finish, full and rich, with a nectar-like honeysuckle note and a lingering touch of vanilla. This is one of the sweetest, most exquisite coffees I've ever tasted from El Salvador, and the fruit-juicy flavors have to be tasted to be believed. It's a sip of pure coffee delight.
It's always a special occasion when a Gesha crosses our path. We've been fortunate to feature a few of these gems over the past few years, but none from El Salvador and rarely a natural-processed lot! I call Gesha the “cashmere sweater of coffees”, because its a luxurious coffee-drinking experience, with warmth, coziness, and quality 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 El Salvador El Manzano, you'll understand the hype. With its big, syrupy notes of pineapple juice, sparkly pomegranate, and a honey-drizzled finish, this sweet and lively cup is a unicorn of Salvadoran coffee. Don't wait! We only have a small amount of this limited lot, and it's sure to go fast! Reserve your bag of Caffe Ladro's exclusive, super-limited El Salvador El Manzano Gesha, and "spring ahead" with a little luxury for your morning cup.
