Pirates of Coffee - Tiger Gesha, Costa Rica Anaerobic Natural
Tiger Gesha was produced by Hacienda Copey, who are winners of the Costa Rica Cup of Excellence.
The anaerobic natural process results in a cup that is tropical and winey.
Tasting Notes: Grilled Pineapple, Dark Chocolate, Tiger Lily, Red Grape, Lime
Cup score: 88.25 ☕
Tiger Gesha is a little different from our previous Takara Gesha release from Hacienda Copey.
Takara had more of a traditional geisha cup profile: elegant, and tea-like. Tiger Gesha on the other hand is more fruit-forward and juicy with a higher floral intensity. Tiger also has a slightly higher cup score. They are both beautiful gesha coffees, in their own way.
When we cupped these 2 coffees 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!
