This Geisha was processed using a special dry fermentation (DFS) method, where the coffee is partially dried on raised beds before undergoing an anaerobic fermentation, followed by a final drying stage in a dark temperature-controlled room.

The DFS process can lead to a coffee with a very distinct flavor profile. The combination of initial partial drying, anaerobic fermentation, and controlled final drying can result in coffees with enhanced sweetness, complexity, and sometimes more pronounced fruit-forward notes.

Notes: Apricot jam, strawberry, honey, & tropical
