Soft and delicate. Jasmine and peach aromas. Earl grey tea.
Finca Buenos Aires is located in Florida Huila at 1,800m and is owned by Marina Romero and her family.
This represents a big first for Crankhouse. Our first coffee of the famous and highly regarded Geisha variety, made famous by Hacienda La Esmeralda in Boquete Panama. This Geisha is our third and final coffee as part of our import partner Cata Exports female producer project which gives female Colombian producers a platform to showcase their work with small European roasters.
Marina has been working in coffee growing since she was a child and her passion for coffee comes from her mum, who also worked all of her life in the coffee fields. Today, Marina looks after the whole production at Finca Buenos Aires and specialises in exotic varieties including Geisha. She says that there are many details to producing Geisha successfully, which is the reason why she spends most of her time at the farm, looking after the picking and milling.
For this Geisha, after picking, the cherries undergo 12 hrs aerobic fermentation, depulping, then 36 hrs anaerobic fermentation, with a two stage slow drying under parabolic Marquesina.
Geishas are recognised for their delicate florals, stone fruit characters and tea-like body. For us, the aromas reminded us of a very good washed Ethiopian coffee: Jasmine and Peach.
