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: 94 Points (out of 100)
Coffee Review 94 points

Blind Assessment: Gently intense, original. Complex, lavender-toned flowers, honey, crisp roasted cocoa nib, sweet orange zest in aroma and cup. Delicate acidity; very smooth, silky/syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant, quietly flavor-saturated 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.

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!
