Finca Takesi's owners claim it is the highest coffee farm in the world, and we aren't arguing with them. Its extraordinary elevation seems to intensify the flavors of all its coffees, but most especially its Geisha. This lot combines the persistent sweetness and delicate florals that are a hallmark of the Geisha cultivar with a basket full of juicy fruit.
