What is So Great About Gesha Coffee?
It isn’t a single characteristic that makes Panama Geisha coffee beans so great, it’s everything! As far as professional tasters are concerned, Gesha Coffee is in a league of its own in terms of aromatics, flavours, balance, acidity, sweetness, mouthfeel, complexity and aftertaste. Combine these characteristics together and you’re looking at a gourmet coffee that simply towers over anything you’ve ever tasted.
Sure, But What Does Geisha Coffee Actually Taste Like?
Every batch is slightly different and brings its own unique complexities to the table. However, you can expect an extremely complex flavour profile with a pronounced hit of bergamot and jasmine, often underpinned with a delightful hit of sweetness and additional fruity and floral tones. Geisha coffee also has a smooth and enchanting aftertaste that lingers indefinitely.
So Gesha Coffee Doesn’t Actually Taste Like Coffee?
It does, but in a way that’s impossible to understand until you’ve actually tried it. It’s like any other gourmet food or wine experience - Gesha coffee goes beyond the basics with the kind of complexity and all-round enjoyment that make it a 100% unique product to savour. It’s not an everyday cup of joe to swallow in a single gulp - it’s a pleasurable experience to take your time with.
Is it Difficult to Brew with Panama Geisha Coffee Beans?
No, in fact it’s no different than preparing a regular cup of coffee. You’ll need to keep an eye on things like water temperatures, water quality, the size of the coffee grounds and so on, but that’s about it. No special skills or equipment are needed - Panama Geisha coffee beans are perfect for a decent french press or as filter coffee.
Remind Me… Why is Gesha Coffee So Expensive?
For two important reasons - the first of which being the quality of the final product. There’s simply no other coffee in the world that hits the senses with the same power and impact as Gesha Coffee. Secondly, there’s nowhere near enough of the stuff to satisfy demand worldwide. Like any other precious products therefore, the minimal quantities that are available are in high demand and thus pack a premium price… assuming you’re lucky enough to find any in the first place!
