Tasting Notes: Jasmine, Lemon, Black Tea, Raspberry
Farm: Las Palomas
Country: Costa Rica
We were introduced to Las Palomas through our friends at Selva Coffee. The farm owners, Jorge Adán Monge Garbanzo and his wife Flor Mayela García Valverde have inherited the family farm from previous generations. Jorge started growing the Geisha variety 5 years ago and we're thrilled to offer the fruits of his labor.
This will be the first time we've ever offered a Costa Rican! Geisha varieties are known for requiring extremely specific cultivation conditions as well as being difficult to grow and harvest. Why risk planting Geisha versus any other variety, you ask? The justification is in the cup. Geishas are known for their floral, sweet, aromatic properties and this coffee is a beautiful example of that. We encourage you to sip slow on this one. Jorge and the folks at Las Palomas deserve a round of applause for this one. This washed Geisha is the perfect compliment to our current lineup from Costa Rica. Collect all three!
