The Geisha varietal is revered by the speciality coffee world and has legendary status. Geisha trees are slow growing and produce fewer cherries and this leads to increased complexity in the cup. This complexity, the layers of flavour, is what sets it apart from other coffees. Expect a floral aroma, delicate acidity balanced with sweetness, lingering mouthfeel and subtle peppery finish. We are lucky in our job to experience stunning coffees but this has to be one of the best we have ever had in our workshop. It is, as we say in the coffee world, a proper banger!
Trapiche is one of the 5 farms that the Rodriguez family owns in Samaipata. The farm is located between 1,550 and 1,700 masl and is shaded with native trees. Some wild forest patches have been encouraged as part of the crop mix on the farm keeping the biodiversity rich.
IN THE CUP - super complex range of flavours, look out for jasmine flower, lychee & honey sweetness with a coriander seed finish.
