Ethiopia Gesha Village Oma (Light roast)
Area: Bebeka, Oma/ Benchi-Maji
Process: Fully washed
Variety: Gesha 1931
Flavor note: Green apple , Sweet lemon, Earl Grey tea, Long-lasting aftertaste
Barista's comment: Vibrant acidity of green apples and freshness of a ripe sweet lemon. Enjoy the clean mouthfeel and long after taste of English tea — amazing cup quality, what you would expect for a Gesha.
I ordered this coffee for a friend, and he was kind enough to let me try it. Wow. This was one of the first coffees I tried from Kurasu's own roaster, Fushimi Inari, and all I can say is wow. They really did an absolutely fantastic job and I am looking forward to other coffee roasted at Fushimi. This is everything you've heard about and expect from a Gesha. We brewed it using a V60, and the method highlighted the green apple and citrus notes. And the aftertaste! This is a fantastic coffee.
