We just got our hands on a world-class Natural Colombian Geisha that’s so sugary-sweet, smooth as honey, and thought-provokingly complex, you’ll want to enter your mug into the Cup of Excellence competition. Tear open a bag, everyone in the kitchen will want to indulge in a whiff of these aromatic beans. In the cup, you'll taste notes of cherry, plum, and nectarine that stay soft and mellow, with a long, luscious finish like sweet cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon-sugar.
A huge honor for us, our coffee curator, Maryna, just returned from judging the Cup of Excellence Competition in Colombia. She came back with fairy tales from the home of specialty coffee, from bean-covered plants growing wild on the roadside, to mist-covered peaks and rolling coffee farms as far as the eye could see (pictured above). She also fell in love with the Colombian geisha bean. Native to Ethiopia and cultivated in Latin America for decades before being “discovered” for its unique and complex nature, the geisha is well-known for its pedigree as a luxury bean. Soft and silky-sweet, geisha coffee is a rare and special cup, with delicate fruit flavors and a crystal-clear profile. Most geisha beans are washed, as natural processing can be tricky to get right. Only the best farmers are willing to take a risk on their geisha crop and when it’s done right, it’s worth it. If a geisha coffee is rare and unique, a naturally-processed geisha is doubly so. When Maryna returned from Colombia, she helped us secure this coffee gem for you.
If you want to experience a coffee at the pinnacle of the Colombian coffee world, you don’t want to miss this geisha natural blend. This coffee is very limited, so act quickly this week!
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This was a good roast. Loved the fruity tart cherry and plum taste with sweet honey. Hard to describe but the flavor was great.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This cup has a surprising sweetness to it that declines the need for sugar. A very special cup.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Liked the honey taste mixed with the red and purple fruits. Not one I might go out and pick out, but it was quite decent. I tasted the cherry and the plum.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Cup was too tart and had this kind of strange taste to it that is hard to describe and which I've tasted in other natural process coffees. Overall good enough I guess and had some interesting fruit notes.|

||★★★★★||★★★★★ A really good roast! I could smell raspberry and cherry notes while it was grinding. Those flavors followed through to the brewed cup. A very smooth cup of coffee full of sweet fruit flavors and a slightly spicy cinnamon aftertaste.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ This is a definite favorite for me. I love Columbians for their sweetness. This is a natural which adds so much more complexity to the notes and brings forward the fruitiness.|
