The prestigious, well-known geisha from El Puente Farm is here with ou·bai·tou·ri for limited time! The exquisite Jasmine aroma and flavor with the lychee gentle sweetness are easy noticeable as you take your first sip. Tangerine and oro blanco-like fresh acidity can be quite interesting as well.

1. Honduras El Puente Geisha Washed
Country: Republic of Honduras
Region: Chinacura, La Paz Province
Producer: Marysabel Caballero Garcia
Plantation: El Puente
Altitude: 1,500m ~ 1,680m
Production Process: Washed
Marysabel was born into a family of four generations of Honduran coffee growers, and has been involved in coffee production with her parents since she was a child. Currently, she and her husband, Moises, who is from Guatemala, are engaged in coffee production at El Puente.
She has been participating in the Cup of Excellence since the inaugural competition in 2004, placing 2nd in 2005 and 8th in 2006, and has also been growing Geisha coffee since 2006.
Marysabel and her husband are very passionate about producing high quality coffee, and they are actively growing new varieties to see which ones are best suited for the farm.
They are also actively working to improve the living standards of the local community and farm employees by building classrooms and cafeterias at two schools near the farm, donating educational materials, and selecting one worker each year to help with the cost of building a house.
2. La Primavera Natural Anaerobic
Region: San Agustin Argentina
Farm: La Primavera
Variety: Arabica/Catura subspecies, Bourbon subspecies
Process: Natural Anaerobic
On sweetness, mouthfeel, clean cup, and flavor quality, this natural has a strong sense of the Colombia Huila region's characteristics and a different cup profile than traditional naturals.
For the selection of the coffee cherries, we procure the raw materials from farmers who grow the Caturra and Bourbon subspecies in the Argentina region, sort the cherries by weight using a floater, and select only fully ripe cherries. The fermentation process is a combination of aerobic and anaerobic to create clean and unique flavors. After the cherries are fermented, they are slow dried in the sun and African bed drying (shadow drying) for 60 days. After the drying process is complete, the cherries are stored in a warehouse for at least 20 days before being threshed. After the drying process is complete, the grain is left in the warehouse for more than 20 days before it is threshed, and then sorted by hand to remove any defects such as unevenness in the drying process.
It is a delicate refining process that takes a lot of time and effort, but every year the coffee is wonderfully crafted for an unprecedented coffee experience.
3. Ruiz Selection Geisha Honey
Country of origin: Panama
Region: Jaramillo, Alto Quiel, Orquesta and Callejón Seco, Boquete District, Chiriqui Province
Producers: Several coffee farmers in the Boquete region
K&R Specialty Coffee was founded by Plinio Ruiz, a former owner of the Berlina plantation. He exports Panama coffee all over the world. He cupped and blended coffees from the Boquete region to create this honey processed Geisha.
The Boquete region is one of the oldest coffee growing areas in Panama. Many of 'the Best of Panama' winners have come from the Boquete region. Some of the farms are well known and major, but there are also many small and unknown producers. This is where Plinio Ruiz got his start. Even unknown producers make good Geisha. Plinio went door to door, cupped, blended, and created the Ruiz Selection.
