Colombia Finca La Maria Geisha Natural - #1 96 Points
Imagine a magical elixir of candied fruit, sweet cherries, and a forward note of rich dark chocolate, boldly full bodied and smooth to the finish. The scent of floral bouquet with a hint of jasmine entices. The naturally processed beans bring out the sweetness of the coffee fruit. This Geisha won first place in 2020, second place in 2019 and 2017, fourth place in 2018, and has been reviewed at 96 Points. This is a rating higher than one Geisha which sold for over $1000 per pound last year at wholesale auction. This coffee changes throughout the temperatures, highlighting different flavors from hot to warm to cold. It is so enticing, one review called it “intoxicating”. If you’ve been yearning to try a Geisha, we are so proud to be able to offer you this outstanding specimen at a reasonable price. At Smoky Mountain, we have tried many Geishas and this is by far our favorite. It makes the perfect after dinner coffee for special guests.

Our Columbian Geisha, Finca La Maria, is grown and processed by Maria and Orlando Ospina and their team loves what they do. Together, the Ospinas and their team are not only growing coffee, they are growing a community. This coffee is a unique combination of weather, work and love. With Orlando's background as an Agronomist of many years and Maria's entrepreneur drive, they decided to rent 3.5 hector plot of land to fulfill a dream of growing their own Natural Geisha coffee. Their passion-project started 6 years ago, taking a chance growing Natural Geisha coffee. Since they started their farm in 2015, their land has flourished and they now have 5,000 shrubs producing coffee. The unique microclimate of constant rainfall allows Maria and her team to meticulously pick two times a month year around. Given what they have achieved, we can expect to see much more from the Ospina's in coming years.
