About The Cup

This particular gesha coffee embodies the quintessential characteristics of a traditional gesha, but it elevates complexity to a remarkable degree. It presents a multifaceted profile, blending notes of vanilla and fragrant florals in a harmonious symphony. Upon sipping, one is greeted by a luscious, almost succulent quality reminiscent of perfectly ripe berries and stone fruits. Moreover, with each sip, the floral essence intensifies, unfolding layers of aroma and flavor as the coffee gradually cools. This cup exemplifies the intricate nuances and dynamic evolution typical of exceptional geisha varieties, offering a sensory journey that delights and surprises at every stage.
