TAKARA GESHA: Costa Rica Anaerobic Honey
Takara means Treasure in Japanese. And since we're pirates, we had to secure this gem for all members of The Crew.
Takara Gesha was produced by Hacienda Copey, who are winners of the Costa Rica Cup of Excellence.
The anaerobic honey process results in a cup that is extremely floral and elegant. The aroma reminds us of walking through a botanical garden! ☠️
Tasting Notes: Nectarine, Honey Lemon, Iced Tea, Daffodil, Candied Orange, Marmalade
Cup score: 88.00 ☕
When we cupped Takara Gesha for the first time, we immediately understood why their gesha has finished either #1 or #2 in the Cup of Excellence every year since 2017!
Takara has a highly refined cup profile and it's evident that this coffee was produced with the highest levels of quality and attention to detail.
