We've designed a special selection bundle for the holidays composed of two of our most exquisite coffees of the year. 

Bolivia Finca Takesi Geisha

Every year we await the annual Geisha harvest at Bolivia's Finca Takesi with eager anticipation. 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 year's harvest combines the persistent sweetness and delicate florals that are a hallmark of the Geisha cultivar with a basket full of juicy fruit.

Flavor notes: Tangerine, Raspberry, Apricot

Ethiopia Gesha Village 1931 Natural

Adam Overton and Rachel Samuel Overton have taken an heirloom cultivar and processed it with a modern twist on a time-honored tradition. The result is truly superlative - a 1931 Gesha varietal lot that combines the intense aromatics and amped-up flavors we expect from naturals with the crystal clarity and translucence we seek in washed coffees.

Flavor notes: Cherry, Mandarin Orange, Honey

PLEASE NOTE: This bundle is available as whole bean only.
This bundle will roast & ship every other Thursday from Chicago while supplies last. Roast dates: 11/18, 12/2, 12/16
Bundle consists of two bags of coffee, 7 ounces each.

    How To Brew

    We recommend starting with a 1:18 coffee-to-water ratio, which provides an excellent total extraction level and maximizes flavor pulled out of the ground coffee. For our single origin coffees we recommend a pour over method either on a Chemex, V60 or Kalita Wave on a 5 or 6 grind setting if you are ordering from intelligentsia.com.
