This is our third year to offer Mario's delicious gesha!  His beautiful farm Monte de Oro sits at the base of Volcan de Fuego, which regularly grumbles, shaking the ground and rattling windows.  Intimidating as it is, the resulting volcanic soil is just right for growing coffee.  Add to this high altitude, impeccable processing and the special gesha variety, and you've got some seriously spectacular coffee!

As with last year, 2021's naturally processed lot boasts a bubble gum like fragrance just off the grind.  The sweet and intense aromatics are a prelude to what to expect in the cup, where we are tasting darker fruit notes like blackberry mingling nicely with hints of ripe honeydew melon.  If you are looking for a special treat for yourself or a friend at a great price for a gesha of this quality, then look no further. Plus this is our first exclusive lot to go in our new 6oz specialty bags! Enjoy.
