Aromas of blood orange, honey, and lavender introduce this richly fruit-toned cup. Notes of blackberry, cherry cordial, and clove are balanced by pomelo acidity and clover honey sweetness. The soft body finishes with floral tones of lavender and coriander.
Available whole bean in an 8 oz Blue Label tube, 8 oz pouch, or 4 oz pouch. This coffee roasts and ships on Tuesdays only—you must order by 4PM CT Monday to be included in Tuesday's roast.

This is our first year offering coffees from Finca Santa Ana, running the gamut from a layered washed Bourbon/Catuai blend to an experimental Pineapple Process to this Gesha with incredible fruit and floral tones.
The farm is off the electrical grid at high altitude, benefiting from a mild climate with a warm stream of wind from the Pacific Ocean. The farm has an average yearly rainfall of 2200 mm, relative humidity of 60%, volcanic soils, and plenty of shade from native trees like Gravilea, Cuje, Pine, Cypress, Mundani, and Oak.
Finca Santa Ana is a long-time Direct Trade partner of our sister company, Bird Rock Coffee Roasters. The farm has had multiple Cup of Excellence appearances, including #4 in 2010 and #16 in 2015. The carefully supervised quality control at the farm is evident in the cup.
As part of our Direct Trade buying philosophy at PT's and Bird Rock, we always look for ways to invest in our farming partners in addition to paying a good price for the coffee. In 2015 Bird Rock shared an investment with Fernando to plant new seed stock at the farm with about 15 new varietals, including Mokka and Geisha. In a few years, these shrubs will give Finca Santa Ana more varietals to sell to specialty roasters and add another dimension to this already great farm.
