Brand New Microlot!

It gives us a great pleasure to introduce this Geisha from San Marcos. This is the first time we have offered this particular coffee in our lineup. The Nueva Grenada Estate occupies 5 square kilometers within the San Marcos region of northwest Guatemala near the Mexico border. This region is one of the warmest and rainiest coffee regions in Guatemala with a varied climate due to differences in altitude. The varied climate and the high altitude makes for a great bean!

Cupping notes: An aroma of sweet brown sugar, jasmine, and dark chocolate with rich and well balanced flavors of berry, pear, green apples, and stone fruit

It's a delicious coffee. The most salient aspect of the bean roasted to a full city level is balance. Arguably, I should have gone a bit lighter, as I think I obscured some of the lighter origin notes. This bean has taught me what a bright acidity tastes like in concert with a full mouthfeel when made with a pour-over. This was the first geisha I had tried. It's clean with little to no astringency. I also made espresso from the coffee. Very good. A bit too bright, lacking some of the chocolate/nutty aspects that I really enjoy in espresso to achieve classic status, but for those of you who love lighter espressos, this will be a winner. In fairness, I'm comparing it to my standard, the Ferdelance blend from CBC, which everyone MUST try. Overall, it's great - likely not worth the increased price point for me compared to many of the other outstanding coffees here at CBC, but I'm thrilled I tried it.

Really enjoying this Geisha. I have heard great things about these beans and I have to admit I wasn't disappointed with my first taste. Rich and warm on the palette. Very pleased with this purchase and roast!
