Perú Garmas by Maximiliano Garcia
We were blown away by this beautiful and elegant coffee. This is an exquisite gesha from Maximiliano Garcia, who owned and operated a single farm in the village of El Huabo. Maximiliano started in the coffee business in 1985 when he moved to the province of San Ignacio. He focuses on giving the best quality and chooses the best and most ripe beans in the harvest.
This exotic gesha was processed using the washed fermentation method, where ripe cherries are depulped, removing the fruit skins from the seeds, then fermented before being washed and dried to optimal moisture conditions. The result is a very classical we usually found in the gesha variety, with gentle and sweet aromas of rosewater. In the cup, we find an enticing flavor of apricot, that is elegantly complemented by gentle malic acidity and a pleasing melon on the finish.
