The King of Coffees
Geisha King Arthur coffee stands as a special micro lot, carefully processed through aerobic and anaerobic fermentation methods, followed by a delicate honey-style drying process. Don Elkin Arcila begins by hand-picking the coffee cherries, ensuring an optimal sugar level. Next, the coffee cherries undergo a 90-hour fermentation period, followed by depulping and another 90-hour fermentation in mucilage. This controlled fermentation is then followed by the drying of the coffee on African beds in honey, without prior washing, resulting in the iconic and exquisite profile of Geisha King Arthur.
The outcome is a marvelous floral and sweet coffee, boasting tasting notes of tangerine, peach, jasmine, coriander seed, and honey, culminating in an overall very sweet and delightful cup of specialty coffee.
