More About Letty Geisha by El Paraíso

The mad coffee that helped The National Barista Champ, Luke Letts, become The 2024 National Barista Champ.

This Yellow Geisha from Finca El Paraíso farm is grown at an elevation of 1960masl and undergoes one of Diego's crazy processes to achieve his predetermined target flavour profile.

The process begins with harvesting fully ripe coffee cherries with a high sugar content. The cherries are then depulped and undergo an initial wet fermentation process using tropical yeast to enhance the fruity flavours. After 48hrs of fermentation, the beans are washed using a thermal shock technique to fix aromatic precursors into the seed. Finally, the coffee is dried in a dehumidifier, removing moisture while preserving soft notes and avoiding over-oxidation of the beans.

The Yellow Geisha mutation, genetically distinct from other geisha varieties in the region, develops an intense yellow fruit flavour profile thanks to the farm's climatic conditions, altitude, terroir, and year-round heavy rainfall. This allows the variety to truly shine and highlights the quality possible from this mutation.
