Colombia Finca Juan Martin
|Harvest||May - Aug
|Flavours||Honey l Lemon l Bergamot|
Colombian Gesha is one of my top varieties of choice. I love the big honey mouthfeel, the soft citrus and the beautiful floral notes that usually come from this variety. This coffee is Clean and Crisp with all those characteristics in full display. This is our first purchase from Finca Juan Martin with hopes of working together again in the future.
