Topic: Costa Rica La Candelilla Estate Gesha (5 msgs / 174 lines)
1) From: Les
Tom kind of down played this Gesha, so yesterday when I had to roast, I
thought I would give this one a try.  This is one fine Gesha.  It is a bit
more suble than the Panama Geshas, but I kind of like that smoothness with
the complex Gesha character shining through.  The Costa Rica La Candelilla
Estate Gesha is one of the two left on the list.  It has a very nice
chocolate aspect to it with a floral and fruit that I can't put a handle on
this morning.  I guess after blowing through so much coffee on Saturday, my
tasters are just not what they should be this morning.  This is really good
stuff.  Very sweet in the finish with a very very nice aftertaste of
chocolate with just a hint of tobacco.  This is one fine special special
coffee.  Aftertaste has now moved to a very sweet caramel.  Yum Yum, don't
know if I want to take another sip yet as the aftertaste is almost as good
as the real thing!  You might not want to pass this one up.

I was up in the air on which Gesha to buy with my last order and opted for
the Guatemala Acatenango Gesha after looking at the notes for both. The Guat
is a fabulous example of a Gesha with some spice to it, so it's not the same
as the Panama either; it seems I use that Hacienda Esmerelda as my
benchmark.
If the CR Gesha is available when I next order, it sounds like one I would
really enjoy.
cheers,
Scott

I did the same thing last night ordering the Guat' Gesha passing on the CR.
Started this morning with an Americano of first roast of this year's
Esmerelda Gesha:-)  May have to reconsider the CR Gesha...

I flipped a coin on my last order for which Gesha to get, the  
Guatemala won.   I haven't roasted it yet.  However, I'm not ordering  
for quite a while so I will probably have to let this one pass.

Pecan Jim,
Too bad, I am 4 day rested and pulled shots this AM as well as making
a Vac Pot for work.  Let me tell you this is one smooth complex cup.
Very much like a Kona.  I think Tom mentioned Kona, but I didn't look
up his write-up.  Let me tell you if you like a smooth complex coffee,
this is a bargain price compared to most Konas.  This isn't as fruit
laced as the other two Geshas that I have enjoyed.  If you are
swooning over the arrival date for the next Kona offerings, this one
will more than tide you over.  If there is some left when I order
again, I will order another two pounder for sure.
