The Geisha varietal. It never fails to thrill coffee enthusiasts, and with good reason. One of the most-sought-after varietals in the world, it is also challenging to cultivate. For Cerro Azul—the first Colombian farm to produce it—the quest to deliver this lot involved extensive work with other farms and coffee experts, including trips to countries where the varietal has grown successfully. Cerro Azul revels in its own idyllic microclimate: warm winds from deep valleys meet cooler air from the Pacific, creating ideal day-to-night temperature fluctuations. A product of nature and nurture, this cup stuns with a sweetness that belies its arduous journey.
