GN-25 GEISHA: Panama Abu Coffee Anaerobic Natural
A delicate and floral geisha micro-lot from the legendary Pirate of Panama himself, Jose Lutrell from Abu Coffee.
The anaerobic natural process in lot GN-25 results in a cup that has the tropical fruit acidity and sweetness that Abu Coffee is known for. The tea-like texture and presence of Jasmine makes for an extremely enjoyable and relaxing cup.
Tasting Notes: Purple Grape, Mango, Mandarin, Cantaloupe, Jasmine

This is our third year working with Abu Coffee and we just can't get enough of Jose's coffees. His coffees are regularly used in competitions around the world because of their outstanding quality.
ANAEROBIC NATURAL PROCESS
The cherries are hand collected at the optimum maturation point, then hand-selected and floated with mountain spring water. The whole cherries are fermented for 24 hours in open tanks.
Once this first stage is finished, the cherries go through a second phase of anaerobic dry process for 96 hours. After the fermentation is completed, the cherries are transferred manually to the African raised beds to the final sun-dried stage for 25 days.
Abu Coffee was named to honor the memory of José Guillermo Luttrell Tedman, a third generation coffee producer from the Cañas Verdes region of Boquete, Chiriquí in Panama.
"ABU" (short for Abuelo, grandfather in Spanish) is what his grandchildren used to call him. His dream was to achieve the best cup of coffee with the highest standards of quality. Abu Coffee continues to live this dream by producing some of the most incredible and unique coffees available not only in Panama, but globally.
We met José Luttrell from Abu Coffee and were blown away with his work ethic.
José is a man on a mission. A hustler. A doer. He makes things happen. He's definitely got some pirate in him. 🏴☠️
Just 2 days after chatting with him on the phone, he met up with us and arranged to cupping of his legendary geisha coffees.
