TASTING
An elegant and round profile with delicate floral aromatics of orange blossom that make way to a silky texture and sugary sweet flavours of caramel, green tea and lemon zest.

COFFEE STORY
This limited edition Gesha is grown on Santa Rosa 1900 farm and expertly processed through the white honey method by award-winning producer Luis Alberto Monge at the acclaimed La Lia Mill in the Tarrazu region.

Producer Luis Alberto Monge's farm Santa Rosa and family-owned micro-mill, La Lia, is located in the Leon Cortez micro-region of Tarrazu and just outside its capital city, San Marco. At the mill, they use many different levels of honey for processing their coffees. This specific lot has undergone a white honey process. They use the centrifugal washer to spin most of the fruit mucilage off the bean leaving only a tiny amount of the fruit or "honey" on during fermentation. The result showcases the Tarrazu region's elegant texture, depth and sweetness but with the delicate complexity of the geisha variety.

Lovely complex, fruity flavours, with a tea-like body

I ordered this bean because I'm on a mission to taste a wide variety of Gesha's now. It arrived super fast, just four days after roast. My initial impression was nice but with a sour finish and concluded that I needed to rest it for a few more days for better extraction.

My next trial was at 8 days off roast: and it was lovely. I can really taste the fruity notes and its complexities. I have drunk it with and without food now and find it to be an excellent coffee either way.

The only problem for me is that I prefer a rounder, fuller mouth feel and this coffee has a very tea-like character to it. So I can't list it in my all-time favourites list but I respect it as a fine cup of coffee.

I have been brewing it by V60 pour over, 17g for an 8oz cup, 98C temp, 15 grind on Baratza Virtuoso+.

A pleasure to brew and drink

Using my AeroPress after grinding with my Comandante and a temperature of 90 C I found this coffee a pleasure to grind, brew and consume first thing in the morning and again at noon. My hat is off to the roaster for near perfection. Thank you for this experience.

Lovely lovely cups

I love it. Yesterday my friend dropped by my place and we had a wonderful afternoon with vairouse topics. One major part of it is coffee. He is new to this realm and get shocked by the coffe I drived from this wonderful bag.

The sweetness is always there. The caremel flavour is so noticable that my friend tastes it effortlessly. Wonderful wonderful experience. Huge shout out to Detour.

Smooth and Rich

This is a special coffee. My preference is for more dynamic flavours, but the Santa Rosa Gesha is like a cashmere throw. Comforting and luxurious.
