Panama Abu Geisha Natural
DIRECT TRADE COFFEE
This lot really stood out to us from all of Jose’s offerings this year for its complexity, clarity and balance. There’s a lot packed into this coffee, with a juicy acidity between mandarin and blood orange, a concentrated berry jam sweetness and notes of cherry, plum and mango. Look forward to a tremendously fruity coffee that offers outstanding depth and nuance.
This lot underwent an anaerobic dry process for 180 hours and was then sun-dried on African-raised beds for approximately 25 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.
