This new Geisha is a natural coffee, produced anaerobically by the Bayter Estate next to the mountains of El Ruiz in Tolima.

This Bayter Estate has been recognized as one of the most innovative coffee processing farms in Colombia, managed by the Bayter brothers, a second-generation coffee producer, who decided back in 2012 to pursue the best cup of coffee through innovation in the processing area. Following the genetics of the Gesha from El Vergel Estate, two of the main genetic branches available are the green and bronze tip trees, which by a series of experiments have brought the Bayter brothers unique flavors that you will find with the Marcela.

Cupping Notes: Tropical fruit, mango, juicy acidity, and caramel.

Excellent body, deep, rich. complex and bright. Fruity (currants and plums) overtones with a nice chocolate background, just a hint of earthiness and a long, satisfying finish.
Brilliant acidity, a medium body, and sweet flavors of orange citrus, caramelized sugar, and fine chocolate. It is impeccably balanced with a long, satisfying finish
Very bright and very sweet, expect notes of blueberry, watermelon, strawberry, and peach.

These beans are wonderful in many ways. Tons of chaff was released at above one minute into the roasting process. The separation between the first crack and the second was distinct. It was very easy to detect the beginning of the second crack which was where I stopped the roast and started cooling them down. The aromas that developed during roasting were beautiful. Very floral and sweet. If you've ever smelled Sweet Timothy grass in your local pet store, it really reminded me of that. The copious chaff generated left almost zero debris in the final product. After four hours of off-gassing, I firmly sealed the clean quart (about 800ml) glass jar. Because I was going for a fair comparison with the beans I normally use, I followed my usual brewing routine the next morning. I brew in all non-metal. The filtered water is heated to 195F (90.5C). I use a Chemex molded (not blown) glass brewer. I also use the Chemex square, unbleached filters. I ground the beans in a ceramic burr hand grinder with a glass capture bin. I set the burrs to a medium grind. I used precisely 45 grams of ground coffee for 48oz (1.4L) of water. I rinsed the filter and brewer with hot water immediately before starting the brewing process. I started the brewing by soaking the grounds just enough that they were just wet. I allowed them to 'bloom' just until all motion had stopped. I then add the water slowly until the level reached the top of the the brewer. I waited to slowly add more water until the level dropped about .5 to one inch (1.25 to 2.5cm). I added the water to the center of the grounds to return the level to the top of the glass. I repeated this until the level of the brewed coffee reached 48oz in the bottom of the brewing vessel. I then removed the spent grounds and filter and immediately transferred the finished coffee to my glass lined Bunn airpot. I follow these exact same procedures each and every time I roast and brew. The final coffee was excellent. Very bright and definitely floral. But, the big question for me was, is it really five times as enjoyable than the Columbian Huila that I use every day? No. It was great, but the Geisha was only marginally better. Considering that the Geisha beans are about five times the cost of the Huila, I won't be buying these beans again. It was definitely an enjoyable experiment.

This coffee was by far the best I have ever tasted or roasted. I tried it just to see if there was a major difference in an expensive coffee. I roasted some light, some medium, and some dark. I thought the light to medium tasted best . I was very pleased with how Coffee Bean Corral handled the transaction. My order was well protected and delivered quick. Do I recommend this coffee on a regular basis? I guess that would depend on the size of your income. I do recommend doing business with Coffee Bean Corral, as I will continue to do. If I had to complain about anything it would be that if you consider shipping + the cost of the coffee I paid about &39.00 for the pound. I knew that beforehand so that’s not the complaint. It’s the fact that the weight of the bag the coffee was in was considered into the weight of the purchase. Not much but still about 96cents. Too much for such a small bag.
