Lot #: EI05-01

Harvest date: March 25, 2017

Variety: GESHA Central America (seeds from Panama)

History: The seeds from the first plants we had at El Injerto came direclty from our friends at Hacienda La Esmeralda after a trip to Panama that Aguirre Sr. did. It was an honor to us to had this seeds and we treat them as they were: Royal Beans. That is why the name of Legendary Gesha after all its History. 

Ours are still very young plantations and thsi year after a hard prunning from last year we had a small yield, that is why we decided to blend the 3 regions and make one solid lot. This lot was submitted for the first time at COE having a great 2nd Place! 

Process: Peak Performance Process (P3). We call this to our exahustive process of hand sorting, separation and selection of the coffee beans through out the washed and dry mill. Also includes, full fermentation, soaking for 24hrs after washing ans very slow drying. This enhances the flavors and increases the life time of the coffee!

Cupping Notes:  If you like exotic flavors, this coffee is for you. Fully ripen cherries provide this coffee with characteristic sugar of fruit maturation. Since the fragrance, guava, lavender and bergamot surprise your olfactory sense. Oak aged hints that some also describe as eucalypt add to its complexity. Tangerine acidity is well combined with plums and peaches in the aftertaste. Definitely, a coffee to remember.
