About this Geisha Coffee
Our Geisha Heirloom Blend was received so well in 2017 that we just had to bring it back this year as our September Coffee of the Month.
Then it sold out in 8 days!! But now it is back by popular demand!
This is an indulgent blend where we carefully roast selections of the rare Geisha varietal in small batches to coax the most flavour from every bean. We then match our selection with a complimentary Ethiopian Heirloom coffee to create an exceptionally well-rounded and bright espresso coffee. Great served black or white. Our tasting notes include Red Gummy Bears, Peaches, with a Vibrant Fruit finish.
The Geisha varietal shot into prominence in 2004, when one Panamanian farm, Hacienda La Esmeralda entered the ‘Best of Panama’ competition with a Geisha lot they discovered on their farm. The coffee was so exotic, so clean and so brilliant in the cup, that it garnered scores and reviews like no coffee had seen before. Since then, Geisha has dominated coffee competitions to become the most sought-after coffee in the world. Incredible demand, particularly from Asia, combined with the low yield/ availability of the coffee has driven prices for Geisha into a whole new stratosphere. The coffee is quickly entering the realm of “luxury class” as even the lowest prices for the raw product are 25x the price of everyday coffee.
Whether it’s your first morning coffee or your after-dinner choice, this coffee will suit all espresso occasions, but hurry as it’s only on a strictly limited release. Enjoy!
