Colombia Cerro Azul Enano

Profile

Introducing the new crop arrival of Cerro Azul Enano, an ongoing exclusive offering at Equator. As many of you know, Cerro Azul is a coffee farm owned and operated by our quality-obsessed friends at Granja La Esperanza. The farm was planted exclusively to the rare and celebrated botanical variety known as Gesha (or Geisha), or so they thought. As the coffee trees began to mature, it became evident that a small number of trees did not look like Gesha. The compact size of the trees and the dense foliage were distinctly different than the taller, rather sparse Gesha bushes. No one was sure what the true identity of this dwarf variety is. As such, the plants were dubbed Enano, which means dwarf in Spanish.

Because it was not thought to be of the Gesha variety, Granja La Esperanza began processing the Enano cherry separately. When we tasted in Colombia a few years ago we offered to purchase the entire production of this Gesha-like coffee. Whatever the actual variety, the intense floral tones is clearly reminiscent of the Gesha type. Our understanding of this coffee is evolving over time. Originally we thought it might just be a great tasting Arabica species coffee, the shrub looked a little like the Catuai variety. Now we are beginning to think that it is an actual dwarf mutation of Gesha. As the plants continue to naturalize on the farm it seems as if the Gesha-like characteristics are becoming even more intense.

Cupping Notes

Delicate aromas of gardenia and jasmine combine with flavors of milk chocolate, strawberry preserves and sweet table grapes.
