Our “Pinnacle” offering is typically a showcase of coffees that exceed our expectations & this coffee is a perfect example of it. The microclimate at Manantiales Del Frontino in the famed region of Valle Del Cauca is perfect for the delicate Gesha variety to thrive in. The lush forestry provides ample shade from the direct sunlight, creating a conducive environment for the coffee shrubs.
Andres has consistently adopted multiple stage fermentation to his crops to elevate the fruity characteristics in each varietal. Earlier this year we showcased a Red Bourbon as well as a Tabi variety; both coffees displayed the sweet & nuanced fruit notes that are so distinct with high quality Colombian coffees. This Gesha was fermented in its whole cherry form before being pulped & fermented further to increase the depth of flavours. The coffees were then rinsed & dried slowly, a crucial step in ensuring a clean & clear taste experience.
We’re absolutely in awe of this Gesha which exudes the intense floral notes typically associated with Geshas from Panama. The acidity is elegant, reminding us of mandarins followed by a juicy sweetness like lychees. The entire experience is delicate yet displaying enough intensity to keep you savouring for more!
