    is there perfect coffee that brings you the happiness?
    I personally love Singing Rooster's Haitian coffee, not only does it taste amazing but it's also from a business that is dedicated to helping people.

    Yes, Gesha is also my favorite coffee from Guatemala. awfully expensive but at least, I got to cup a lot at harvest season.

    hey Musicphan, personally, I also like gesha. but for you, which processed gesha do you like the most?
    washed? honey or natural?

    yes, Gesha is one of those varietals that you can tell the difference so easily that cuppers/buyers can point out which ones they are while doing the first step of cupping which is "smelling of coffee grounds".

    it has very distinctive and wonderful aroma. and when you "break the cup", the aromatic smells coming out of the cups are just amazing.
    it is super floral and fruity (I am talking about "washed process" which is most common in Guatemala).
    if a cupper can pick out 10 profiles from a normal Bourbon, he/she can pick out 15 or more from Gesha.

    However, just for your info, if there are Bourbon, Pacamara and Maragogype, unless you have a special talent in cupping or have years and years of experience, it is very difficult to tell which is which.

    Good Geisha (89 and up), we are selling $17 to $20 per pound of green beans.

    BTW, I paid more for Kopi luwak before...
    Kopi Luwak is 99% marketing and 1% luwak shit (literally) ha ha ha

    unfortunately, I do not sell Gesha in USA. I only sell to China, Taiwan and Australia.
    in USA, sweet maria carries them, but it should be all out of stock by now because normally Gesha producing countries like Guatemala, Panama..etc will be shipping out the green beans in late July (we haven't shipped out ours yet, it is going out mid August) to end August. Then, they will receive around September for sales.

    so, if you only want to buy green beans, you can check with SM in September or so.

    for roasted beans, they should be available in various places, but normally they charge $80 to $100 for a pound/or 12 oz for good ones.

    hope this helps.

    Really don't understand why people ask for the 'perfect' coffee, shop, machine, grinder, etc. as taste/experience/expectation is seriously subjective. What works for me may not for anybody else, but makes no difference to me.
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!
