  • Complex fragrance and aromas of chamomile, fresh cocoa, green apple and milk chocolate. Notes of milk chocolate and sweet red apple with an aftertaste of chamomile tea and homemade fudge. A mild green apple acidity compliments the flavor and aftertaste and a creamy, silky mouthfeel round it out.
  • Like many gesha coffees, the sweet spot tends to be in the range of light to medium roasts. The floral and tea notes are best tasted here. The acidity is mild and does not feel lacking at the medium roast level. The silky mouthfeel and medium body are arguably the best attributes of this particular coffee.

Mario Valiente implements multiple processing methods at the wet mill including carbonic macerated and anaerobic fermented naturals, traditional naturals, honey, fully washed, semi-washed and more. Each process is tasted and stored according to the cupping result. The farm permanently employs 80 people and up to 210 people from nearby towns during the picking season. Aware of the need in the surrounding communities, Finca Colomba supports schools in the area, hosts medical conferences to provide accessible healthcare and distributes toys to children during the Christmas season.

The Beauty of Gesha

I’ve had quite a few Geshas in my time. This might be my favorite.

Gesha is good

Have roasted Gesha before and haven’t been impressed. This on the other hand was good!

Glad to hear that Don Mario's gesha stood out! Thanks for sharing, Doug.
