Carmen Geisha Panama From Kuma Coffee

If you appreciate fine coffee like I do, here's another superb sample that I was lucky enough to get my hands on. The flavors of this Carmen Geisha Panama were sweet and bright with a crisp, lively mouthfeel. Is this another "top shelf" coffee? Let's find out...

Carmen Geisha Panama
Roast: Medium - City +
Brewing method: Pour-over
Sample from: Bean Box

Aroma

From the bag the Geisha supplied prominent notes of coffee and sweet tangerine. Once ground the aroma was reminiscent of sweet, yet tart Meyer lemon. The pour-over created yet another shift in the aroma that reminded me of raspberry jam. 

Mouthfeel

Extraction on this pour-over was perfect. The first sips of Carmen Geisha Panama were bright, clean and full of life, with a cleansing palate wash. As the coffee cooled, a light syrupiness developed, yet it still had the same mouthwatering effect across the palate and a lingering sweet aftertaste. 

Flavor Notes

The first hot sips had amazing notes of sweet tree fruit with light notes of clean citrus, like a mix of plum, tangerine and lemon. As the coffee cooled a touch of warm spice and a hint toast developed. 

Final Thoughts

Overall this Bean Box sample of Carmen Geisha Panama From Kuma Coffee was strictly "top shelf". With a fantastic mouthfeel and delightful flavors it's one of the finest coffees I've had the opportunity to sample.
