Costa Rica Batamba Geisha Red Honey

Cupping notes

Description

Carlos Luis Urena Hidalgo owns the Santa Rosa farm in the Santa Maria district of the Dota canton. Batamba is the name of a sector on the Santa Rosa farm where the geisha varietal grows. The area itself has always been known as Batamba and precedes the farm, remaining in place as a plot within the greater farm itself. The geisha here was planted in 2016, and so this is the very beginning of its productive life.

Ripe cherries are monitored and only picked with a brix content of 20% or greater. Taken to the micro mill, they are fermented in the cherry for 18hours before being depulped with demucilagers that are commonly found in Costa Rica and massively cut water consumption. Taken to the drying patios, they briefly rest under full sun for a couple of days before moving to the raised beds of the greenhouses where they are constantly turned for 15 days until dry.
