    Tim's notes:

    The Geisha is another "new " cultivar planted at Finca Tamana in recent years. Elias and Bellanid managed to get some good Geisha seeds from one of their neighbours and planted a few hectares of it at Finca Tamana some years ago. Unfortunately it seemed like the seeds they got was a mix of different cultivars as not all the trees looked like Geisha when they grew up which was reflected by an average flavour profile in the cup.

    Because of this Elias and Bellanid started selecting seeds from the trees that looked like Geisha and that had coffee cherries with the familiar sweet papaya flavour that Geisha cherries normally have. They planted these seeds and after a year, when the seedlings were ready to be planted, they decided to replace a few hectares of Caturra with these new Geisha trees.

    Today the trees have grown tall and grow partly under shade. The flavour of the coffee is more intense and much better than the first harvest from their first plantings of Geisha. Having said that, this is not a very intense Geisha and it is still far away from the most aromatic Geisha coffees you can buy from Panama or other areas in Colombia. But instead of focusing on what is not there I tend to appreciate the sweetness and the delicate floral and stone fruit flavours that this coffee has to offer.
