Roasted light based on conduction and moderate heat application with world class skill and care. Extensive roast, high front up heat that declines. Low level of energy application to enable the beans to develop as much as possible focusing on generating a fizzing acidity.

The varietal geisha has won numerous coffee tasting awards in recent years and is creating a high demand for the coffee at auctions.
Geisha coffee plants have become known for their distinguished characteristics. The producer, Eugene with family, acquired two farms in the Boquete region of Panama which were completely abandoned and commenced his involvement with the Special Coffee Association of Panama (SCAP) by primarily focusing and devoting himself on quality and innovation.
The varietal geisha has won numerous coffee tasting awards in recent years and become infamous. It is constantly creating a high demand for the coffee at auctions.
Coffee producers of are constantly looking to improve the quality of coffee by including new techniques and experimental processes. This coffee follows an addition to the conventional natural drying process. Cherries are harvested at 24-26 Brix, sorted and packed in GrainPro bags to be placed in a refrigerator at 12C for 50 hours. Furthermore, cherries are removed from the refrigerator and left to rest for 10 hours and placed on raised beds for primary drying of 5 days. A prolonged drying on shaded raised beds is initiated for up to 30 days.
This lot is arranged by our friend Eugene P. Altieri with family.
Our World Brewers Cup recipe, One (1:1:1), for Hario V60-01/02 with Hario VCF-01/02 filters:
- Coffee: 20g.
- Water: 300g @ 93-95°C, TDS: 10-50 mg/l.
- 100g of 20 second pours in 3 total pours at 0:00, 1:00 and last pour at 2:00. Finish at 3:00.
- Pour by pulsing in helix formation during 20 seconds, starting from the centre, 5 revolutions per pulse. Ensure no grinds persist on the filter wall in the last pouring pulse.
- At 01:00, 02:00 and 03:00, confirm the filter bed is flat and uniform. Avoid generating cavities and craters.
- Target a TDS reading of 1.40±0.02.
- Adjust only grind size and water temperature.
- Grinding: Target 600-800μm. Example: 28 turns from the finest setting on Comandante.
- If the flow ends past each minute, adjust your grind settings to finer and respectively for slower flow.
- The recipe, technique and formula is singularly linear and time efficient. Learn more about linearly up- and downscaling our recipe here.
Use water with balanced mineral content to optimize flavor and character. Keep Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) between 10-50 ppm or mg/l. We advise a temperature between 93-95°C for the best brewing experience.
Please store in a cool and dry place in order to secure freshness and quality. To ensure best possible experience use within 3 months after roast date and 2 weeks after opening. In various environments and setups, your brewing experience can benefit from opening the bag and closing it. Wait one day to brew. We have invested significant time to research the durability of the coffee by actively refining our roasting algorithms to ensure perpetual quality post 3 months of production. Our flavor-lock packaging technology is based on processing and roasting. This ensures persisting and stable aromas, flavors and pro-experience.
Start using at will. Brew immediately or wait several weeks. Prepare for a championship with a strategy. It all depends on your goals.
We recommend using the coffees by first opening the container/bag one day before the first planned brew to enable a natural aeration of the coffees. Use according to the following matrix and remember these are general observations given parameters such as continent, country, region, variety, altitude, process, etc. combined with Coffea Circulor processing and roasting algorithms.
Plan your acquisition according to production schedules (roasting), event attendance (home/championship) and shipping priority (standard/courier).
|0-3 days||Focused acidity|
|4-7 days||Optimal Coffea Circulor recommended praxis|
|8-14 days||Increased floral perception|
|15-21 days||Increased sweetness|
|22+ days||Increased balance|
|1+ month||Intact sweetness, peak intensity|
|2+ months||Inherent balance, possible reduced florals turning herbal|
