    This remarkable Geisha is the first harvest from Hacienda La Papaya, planted in 2018 with seeds sourced from Boquete, Panama. It dazzles the senses with a cup full of complex florals and a honey-like sweetness that lingers in the mouth. A delightful fruit-driven acidity and an incredibly syrupy mouthfeel make this coffee truly unforgettable. The 25-day processing sees the cherries rotated regularly on elevated beds.
