Incredibly complex and bursting with deep, dark-skinned, stone fruit acidity this anaerobic geisha offers layers of clean, vibrant acidity that cools to reveal a gentle rose-like quality on the finish. This coffee is extremely balanced with a structured, creamy mouthfeel that is as sweet as honey. 

Slightly trickier to roast, we found this coffee likes a slow warm-up and medium development time, extending the roast slightly to highlight its creamy, cooked sugar sweetness.

Finca El Mirador is set on 13 hectares of dense native forest. Blessed with high altitude the finca sits between 1750 & 1850 MASL in the department of Tolima, Colombia. Antonio grows a mixture of varietals but has dedicated a considerable amount of land to growing Geisha. Antonio's passion for growing exceptional coffee that cups well is clear to see from this lot and when we tasted it for the first time this year we knew we had to buy some.
