Ripe blueberry is paired with sweet lemon and a hint of yuzu, with a silky smooth body.
This farm takes its name from the country’s national animal, a striking example of which the Rodriguez family encountered there on their first visit. A rather run down farm when they bought it, they renovated it, including pruning, looking after the soil and planting new coffee trees.
The family are great experimenters in diversifying the flavours they can produce - this lot showcases both an unusual varietal and process. The Geisha Hawaii varietal is their name for Geisha plants which come from Costa Rica. Geisha seeds came from Ethiopia and were left in Costa Rica and Panama in the 1950’s, but forgotten until around 2010. As the Panamanian Geishas grew in fame, so too Costa Rican Geishas were rediscovered.
The Rodriguez family have, very unusually, bought both Costa Rican and Panamanian Geisha lineages to Bolivia. Whilst similar, this Geisha Hawaii earns its extra name with less floral notes and more gutsy fruit flavours.

This coffee has also been Coco Natural processed – dried in the coffee cherry to create a distinctive flavour profile. Not traditional to Bolivia due to frequent rains which interrupt drying, the family built greenhouses and specialist stationary drying boxes which they use to get around this and ensure delicate, nuanced and elegant flavours are developed.
