The Geisha bean is a unique and prized Arabica coffee variety that produces very sweet, delicate, and complex notes in the cup. This Costa Rican Geisha was grown by our friend, Carlos Barrantes, and his wife, Diana. Together, they own five small farms and the La Perla del Cafe Specialty Micromill where they process all of their coffee.
This particular Geisha was processed using the “honey” method. This means that instead of washing all the fruity mucilage off the beans post fermentation, Diana & Carlos allowed some to remain as the coffee dried on raised beds. By processing this way, they’ve assisted the cherry in endowing more fruit forward notes and a smooth clean finish to the cup it will eventually produce.
