About the Bean:
This very special Geisha micro-lot is from Finca Agua Tibia, an estate located in the Fraijanes Plateau outside Guatemala City. Grown at high altitudes and in moist, fertile soil, this Geisha has been nurtured in perfect conditions. The results are exceptional.
This micro-lot is intensely floral, with bergamot and vanilla fragrance, coupled with lemongrass's distinct and complex brightness. Agua Tibia has produced one of the best examples of a classic washed Geisha profile that we have tried at ECRE this year.
