Bolivia Geisha Coffee
We've just finished one of our favourite microlots of the year from Boliva. A washed Geisha coffee processed using a semi-anaerobic fermentation method. We wanted to make sure that the information on this great coffee remains here in our blog for those customers still drinking this coffee or wanting to find out a bit more about Bolivia Geisha coffee.
This microlot comes from a small farm called Trapiche located at 1550-1700 masl in the Samaipata region. The farm is planted with Geisha trees under the shade of various native tree species. There are also several sections of wild untouched forest within parts of the farm.
Harvesting and Processing:
Coffee was hand harvested to ensure only perfectly ripe cherry from the Geisha trees was selected. After harvesting flotation in tanks was used to seperate out any defects before the pulping stage. The coffee was then pulped and fermented for 48hrs in tanks filled with water and covered with plastic. The producer has called this a semi anaerobic process as it sits between the dry fermentation washed method and the full anaerobic method which is done inside sealed tanks.
Jasmine, Floral, Ginger, Honey, Sweet Lemon and Stone Fruit. This is a wonderfully delicate coffee with a tea like body.
