MB2: Dimma Gesha

<p>Occasionally, we end up with small amounts of Tasting Series coffees left over after the Tasting Series has been shipped. Every so often, we'll be selling these special coffees at a discount, with a catch: you won't know what the coffee is until after it ships - and it's in very limited quantities. Those lucky enough to receive this Mystery Batch enjoyed:</p>

<p> 
<b>Variety: </b> Illubabor Forest
</p>
<p>
<b> Processing: </b> Natural
</p>
<p>
<b> Origin: </b> Bench Maji, Ethiopia
</p>
<p>
<b> Producers:</b> Gesha Village Coffee Estate
</p>
<p>
<b> Altitude: </b> 1966-2019m
</p>
<p>We’re in for another treat with this
exceptional coffee from the Gesha Village
estate in Bench Maji, Ethiopia. Beyond
being extremely delicious and rare - the lots from Gesha Village are second-to-
none in their traceability. Many producers separate different varietals into blocks
on their farms; Gesha Village is the only
producer we’ve seen to provide a map
with precise altitude measurements for
each block (this coffee was grown in the
Dimma block in the north-central section
of the farm). Illubabor Forest is a varietal
from the Jimma Agricultural Research
Center in Ethiopia based on samples
collected in 1974 and selectively bred for
disease resistance and supreme flavor
qualities. Since much of Gesha Village’s
coffees are wild-foraged from the Gori Gesha forest, Illubabor provides much-
needed genetic diversity on the farm.</p>
<p>
More importantly, Illubabor Forest is a
knock-out coffee with exceptional clarity
of flavor. We’re tasting a bright Meyer
lemon acidity and juicy raspberry tartness
mingling with a pervasive sweetness
throughout. It brews a cup of coffee that
you’ll remember long after it’s gone - and it certainly won't last long tasting this good! </p>

Amazing

Delicate and full of flavor at the same time. The fruity aroma of the beans really matched the flavor of the brewed coffee- which isn’t always my experience with coffees. My favorite so far.

Glad you enjoyed! Geshas always come through with the fruit tones in my experience.
