Tasting Notes

A broad spectrum of flavors shimmers with hints of honey, blood orange, lime and juicy cherry. High citrus notes are complemented by a jasmine aroma and a bergamot black tea finish.

Rating: 91 Points (out of 100)
Coffee Review 91 points

Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a "K-Cup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving) Honey, crisp, caramelly chocolate, hints of flowers, apricot and mango in the aroma. Sweet and juicy in the cup: apricot, mango, hints of flowers and chocolate. Balanced, delicately juicy acidity; smooth, silky mouthfeel. Sweet-toned, rich, gently drying finish.

Notes: Produced from trees of the rare Ethiopia-derived botanical variety Geisha (more properly spelled Gesha). With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and crisp, often chocolaty cup, the Gesha/Geisha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world's most unique coffees.

About Green Mountain Coffee®

 

 

A great tasting cup of coffee can give you a whole new perspective. It's a moment to pause, reflect, and reprioritize. That moment is what inspires us to make coffee that benefits everyone it touches. From carefully sourcing and roasting the highest quality beans, to supporting small farms and protecting the environment, we focus on what's important.

That's why we at Green Mountain Coffee® believe a good cup of coffee can change your day... but a great cup of coffee can help change the world.

Notes From Origin

A new expression of an ancient delight

Few coffee varietals have generated the buzz and excitement among the coffee cognoscenti like the Geisha has. Delicate and mysterious, it unveils new pleasures with every sip. The cup turns gently from honey to blood orange, then dips seductively into juicy cherry, lime, and orange blossoms. An intensely floral aroma floats above lemon notes that reveal this beauty’s true nature: for while Geisha is a rare cultivar grown in Colombia, it has a distinctly East African heritage.

“The love and dedication of all the hands that touch the Geisha have a passion, which is why it is such a great coffee.” – Hernando Tapasco, Finca Cerro Azul Quality Assurance Manager


A happy traveler

Like many Arabica coffees, the Geisha originated in Ethiopia. Enterprising botanists brought it to Costa Rica, then on to the Boquete region of Panama in 1963. More recently, the varietal was transported to the Western Cordillera of Colombia’s Andean mountain range, where it is flourishing.

On the Cerro Azul farm in Valle del Cauca, high altitudes, spring-like temperatures, and consistent humidity levels create a microclimate that is wellsuited for the celebrated botanical superstar. Meticulous hand harvesting ensures that the delicate flavors and aromas of these beans are safeguarded. In fact, it takes four to twelve months of training for a coffee picker to be qualified to pick the Geisha cherries. Once harvested, every step of the processing and milling is carefully controlled and constantly regulated. Mechanical drying ensures that the elusive bergamot notes are preserved.

The result of all this care and attention is a stunningly elegant cup that has taken the coffee world by storm. Enjoy!

        Best cup of coffee I've tasted!

          Comments about Special Reserve Colombia Geisha K-Cup:

          I purchased this when it was part of the Deal of the Week bundle and I have to say that the Colombia Geisha is one of the best cups of coffee I've ever had! I love light roasts, but usually have to add a little sugar, but I made my first cup without it and it was so delicious! Usually when the description talks about flavor notes, all I can taste is coffee, but I could actually taste the fruitiness and floral notes in this one! I just wish it wasn't so expensive by itself.

          I pretty much always use cream and sugar, but this coffee is wonderful without adding anything. I actually tasted the flavor notes promised in the description. I hope Colombian Geisha is available permanently.

            There must be something wrong with my palate. I tried 4 cups of this coffee, thinking the result would change. This is one of my least favorite coffees, especially, for the price!!!

            This is a great tasting coffee when made in the 6oz size. it's already light anything more will make it too light. The price is a bit much. Don't like it anymore than I do other GM coffee at lower prices.

            Comments about Special Reserve Colombia Geisha K-Cup:

            This coffee changed my life. Before I took a sip of this nectar from the coffee gods, my life was not entirely empty, but something was missing. That something was Colombia Geisha. To taste this finest of coffees is to arouse the celebrations of heaven's great chancel choir. Cherubs literally appear from above to celebrate each time you sip this magical beverage. Each drop of this coffee proves to be an elixer for all life's woes. This coffee has the ability to end wars and suffering on our planet. This is the greatest product in the history of products. You must purchase it-- it will change your life. It will change the world!

            Comments about Special Reserve Colombia Geisha K-Cup:

            This coffee is so unique for me, when drank without any sugar or cream (or much less of it than one would normally use in their "daily" favorite). It is quietly complex in flavor, and each sip reveals new flavor nuances that I've never experienced from "just a coffee bean" before. It is fun to close your eyes and compare words that come to mind with others who taste it for the first time. Since it is a light roast, there is no bitter burnt taste. The bean is kept as intact as possible. And one note about light roasts is they have even more caffeine than the dark roasts, since the caffeine isn't baked out. Also, the special packaging was a very nice touch for the elevated price. I liked the information brochure that came with this "Special Reserve" (first SR k-cup?). I certainly hope there are more. I actually hesitated for over a week on whether to write this review, for fear that I would help sell out the limited supply and hurt my own availability chances (so i just ordered 2 more boxes). I soon realized that if I drank this coffee every day it wouldn't seem as special, and everyone deserves to try at least one cup of it in their lifetime IMO. It doesn't cost any more per cup than going "out" for coffee, that's for sure. But it is far more memorable. Just remember.... subtle complexity. It won't slap you in the face and tell you how great it is. This is a mere coffee bean alone, mind you. FWIW, my 2nd, 3rd and 4th cups of Geisha seemed to get better and better as I became more aware of all the unique subtle flavors peeking out over time. I really look forward to the next "Special Reserve" offering.... Great job Green Mountain team!!!

            I have always had to have cream/sugar in my coffee and I can drink this black. Hint of sweetness come through. By far the best coffee I've EVER tried.

                Comments about Special Reserve Colombia Geisha K-Cup:

                This coffee is even better than they say. It has so much flavor, aroma without that better aftertaste that the dark roast coffees seem to have. It is so rich tasting. My all time favorite. Loved adding a little Bailey Irish Cream over the holidays.
