ROAST YOUR OWN – OR LET US DO IT
About the bean
We have been asked repeatedly over the years: "Where's your Geisha?" "When will you carry Geisha?" "Why don't you carry Geisha?"
REGION: Moyuta, Jutiapa (New Oriente Region)
ALTITUDE: 1,500 to 1,700 masl.
VARIETALS: Caturra, Bourbon, Typica, Geisha
HARVEST METHOD: Handpicked
PROCESS: Fully Washed
SHB: Strictly High Grown
EP: (European Prep) Indicates the coffee has undergone rigorous sorting - usually by hand to ensure defective beans and foreign material have been removed.
WHAT TO ANTICIPATE IN THE CUP
Flavour notes: Lemon and yellow fruits. An intense floral bouquet and sweet, floral aftertaste. Delicate with a REMARKABLE body.
Roast recommendation: Light to medium roast. If hesitant, go for a City roast profile. A lighter roast will accentuate tea notes; darker brings out the sweetness but the Geisha's distinctive delicacy will be sacrificed. For an explanation of our different roasts, see here: http://greenbeanery.ca/pages/roasting-chart.
Moyuta is an old coffee growing region in the throes of rediscovery. The national coffee association of Guatemala (ANACAFE) has included Moyuta in the New Oriente brand. Coffee from Moyuta, but a village located in the eastern part of Guatemala, is gathered and processed at a central wet mill.
