Colombia Manantiales del Frontino Geisha / by Steve Willingham

We just received a new batch of coffee from Novel Coffee Roasters. The Colombia Manantiales del Frontino Geisha is a particularly exciting coffee. You guys may remember the Geisha (or Gesha) varietal from a special we did earlier this year. These coffees are really special, and I'm particularly excited to have one from Novel, one of our favorite roasters. Here's what Kevin Betts has to say about it:

Manantiales del Frontino boasts 170 hectares of dense, native forests and mountain streams that provide rich nutrients to its soil and thriving coffee trees. Farm owner Andres Felipe Londoño grows his Gesha variety coffee on only 10% of his farm, intentionally chosen for its nearby pine trees that provide shade and temperature control. Also cultivated here is a strong conviction for ripe cherry selection and perfect processing, all which contribute to the amazing clarity and incredible sweetness in the cup. Champagne-like acidity dances on the tongue and flavors of elderflower and mango are vivid and unforgettable. These attributes led this coffee to score higher on our cupping table than any other coffee we've carried this year!

 

This coffee will only be available temporarily. We'll have a few 6oz canisters for $25 and we'll feature it on the Chemex bar this weekend, but we have a very limited quantity. Don't wait until next week to get this coffee!
