MC.001 Guatemala Geisha
A super special coffee for our Broadway shop turning 1. Currently taking limited preorders for mid December – we will be roasting this coffee after preorders are met so the coffee doesn’t sit.
Geisha is a more rare varietal of coffee that has super complex and unique flavours. Typically very difficult to grow and cultivate, including it needing higher than normal altitudes. If the right growing conditions aren’t met, the more unique flavours won’t come through which is what makes geisha so special and delicious. Now cultivated in most coffee producing countries, the flavours can vary that much more depending on the terroir.
