Panama Abu Geisha Washed
DIRECT TRADE COFFEE
This is a classic washed geisha profile from Abu Coffee – ultra-clean mouthfeel, refreshing acidity and perfect balance. Expect prominent notes of peach or red mango found in both the acidity and sweetness. This is accompanied by elegant, refined floral aromatics reminiscent of washed Ethiopian coffee.
This lot underwent a double phase anaerobic process where the coffee cherries are pulped and “dry fermented” for up to 144 hours before being fully hand-washed with clean mountain water. Once the coffee has been fully washed, it is dried on raised beds for approximately 15 days.
In 2019, we first featured a small lot of Geisha from up-and-coming producer José Guillermo Luttrell Pretto (Jr.). We were so impressed, we reached out and visited José’s farm Abu Coffee in Cañas Verdes, Panama. Ever since his coffees have been some of his most anticipated in our sourcing calendar. His coffee trees grow in rich, fertile soil on the slopes of Barú Volcano National Park, organically shaded by native trees in complete harmony with local flora and fauna.
