Directly imported from the producer, this superb Geisha scored 93 points from Coffee Review when we offered it last in September 2017 for that year's crop. One of our favorite farms in Guatemala is Finca El Injerto from the Huehuetenango region. This coffee is their Legendary Geisha. El Injerto is one of the country's most famed farms, proof of which is that they have won the coveted 1st place prize at the Guatemala Cup of Excellence 6 times and this coffee took 2nd place at the 2017 Cup of Excellence! An unheard of achievement attesting to the diligence and perseverance of the Aguirre family.
