What an amazing coffee, this Abu Natural Geisha has all the classically complex qualities that you would expect from a Panamanian geisha. These distinct notes of blueberry, elderberry and candied tangerine will blow you away. With hints of nectarine stone fruit, mixed berry a complex ASD.

The coffee is hand collected in the optimum maturation point and then hand -selected. We apply an anaerobic dry process for 144 hours and then sun-dried on African raised beds for approximately 25 days.

"The Panama Abu Natural Geisha reminds me of what flavors a great coffee can have. We were AMAZED how good it was" - Mike Perry, upon cupping this coffee.

 

COFFEE REVIEW - Panama Abu Natural Geisha 94 POINTS, May 2020

"Deeply fruit-toned, richly chocolaty. Candied papaya, black cherry, dark chocolate, honeysuckle, agave syrup in aroma and cup. Tart-leaning structure with high-toned, fruity acidity; smooth, gently tannic mouthfeel. The finish centers on dark chocolate and black cherry."

The Abu Coffee brand was named in honor the memory of José Guillermo Luttrell Tedman, to continue his dream of achieving what he considered the best in a cup of coffee, a geisha raised with the highest standards of quality. That is why "ABU" (short for abuelo, grandfather in Spanish) as his grandchildren used to call him, represents the legacy of this visionary and passionate lover of Boquete and specialty coffee, that the family wants to preserve for the generations to come. ABU Coffee participated at the 2018 BOP competition, and achieved the 12th place with its Geisha Natural and 15th place with its Geisha Washed.

 

Abu Coffee is a Geisha varietal cultivated in the region of Cañas Verdes, Boquete near the famed Finca Hacienda La Esmeralda in a humid and rainy microclimate typical of the tropical forest. Coffee trees are grown on the slopes of the Barú Volcano National Park, in fertile profound soils of volcanic origin, rich with organic content and excellent drainage, minimizing erosion.

Average altitude is 1550 meters above sea level. The shade protecting the plantation is given by native trees that grow in harmony with abundant local flora and fauna, respecting the environment and biodiversity. Given its strategic geographic location, sunlight is a key element throughout the whole process. The plantation receives powerful solar radiation, interrupted in the mornings and sunsets by a soft tropical mist known locally as Bajareque and caressed by thick fog.

Harvest season begins in summer, approximately December and extends until March, months when the humidity drops, which combined with the natural shade and the Bajareque mist, achieves the perfect balance for the maturation process. As a result, the cherries develop their maximum potential and intensify the sugars in an optimal manner, enriching the flavor of the grain.

Drying Process: The coffee is hand collected in the optimum maturation point and then hand-selected. We apply an anaerobic dry process for 144 hours and then sun-dried on African raised beds for approximately 25 days.
