Encore Week: El Socorro Geisha 2021
Origin: Palencia, Guatemala
Producers: Juan Diego De La Cerda
We're extremely excited to be bringing this year's lot of Geisha from our friends at El Socorro back to the Tasting Series! We've been buying incredible coffees from Mr. De la Cerda for years - and it's been great to see how his geisha project has found success and recognition in the larger specialty market. This year, a lot of Geisha from El Socorro won Guatemala's Cup of Excellence, making it the best coffee from Guatemala in 2020. We're very happy for Juan Diego, and proud that we were a year ahead of the curve in bringing his incredible Geisha to the club. His commitment to excellence continues - and we're very happy to feature this exemplary coffee for our most devoted coffee lovers.
A cup of El Socorro Geisha is truly exquisite - a coffee that exhibits delicate jasmine florals and juicy strawberry sweetness throughout. There's a lovely acidity as well - similar to grapefruit or bergamot, structured in its brightness without too much of a tart effect. Altogether it's an unforgettable coffee and a fantastic example of what Geisha can be when grown and processed to its full potential. As we brew, we're sending congratulations to everyone at El Socorro for the accolades this year - and our gratitude for the incredible coffees they've shared with us this season and years past!
