Batch #50 of Ninety Plus's Perci lot is an experience unlike any other. This natural gesha underwent a proprietary hot fermentation process, giving it a distinctive flavor profile that will appeal to those who favor syrupy, fermenty naturals over more traditional delicate, floral washed geshas.
Huckleberry and brandied cherry dominate the aroma. The body is syrupy, with a sweet and nutty flavor similar to oloroso sherry. Tamarind acidity and brandy-like sweetness lead to a hazelnut and cocoa nib finish.
This coffee will roast on Tuesdays and Thursdays only.

Ninety Plus Coffee is a grower and producer of single-origin, single-variety coffee in both Panama and Ethiopia, dedicated to creating a remarkable taste experience through process innovation. The core of Ninety Plus's mission is a connection to nature, best social practices, and working to fix a broken agricultural system through canopy and restoration ecology. Ninety Plus is committed to leaving coffee better than they found it.
Ninety Plus recognizes the importance of reforesting and preserving agricultural lands. When they first launched the operation, they knew that they could become an example for the rest of the world by bucking traditional commodity coffee farming and putting the spotlight on ecology. Presently, they're dedicated to growing long-living, heirloom varieties that thrive under 100% natural management techniques, conserving biodiversity, and maximizing the health of the ecosystem and its inhabitants. They cultivate shade-loving plants at low-density areas with native forest canopy trees and consistently achieve exceptionally flavorful coffee varieties.
Yet the reward goes beyond the coffee itself. Today, the vegetation and animals are flourishing, and what were once overgrazed farms are now prosperous forests that are sustained by restoration, topsoil and water retention, increased environmental variance, and a community of residential and seasonal workers.
This coffee will be produced twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All coffee and merchandise in your order will be produced and shipped on the same day unless you specify otherwise in the Order Notes section of your shopping cart. Please see our Shipping FAQs for more details.
