Although last year's Geisha lot from Marysabel and Moises was quite intense in flavour the 2019 took me by surprise when it arrived Norway. I tasted through many daily pickings during my visit in Marcala in March, but did not find the coffees to be very intense. However, when the coffees arrived Norway they showed a much more intense floral and tangerine note with delicate honey notes in the aftertaste. Last year Moises decided to keep every daily picking separate so that I could taste through all the lots and pick the best ones. Since the lots are quite small due to the low amount of plants Moises and Marysabel have of the Geisha cultivar, the daily pickings could be anything from 50kg to a couple of hundred kilos. What was interesting when I tasted the different lots was that we found that one picking from one particular part of the farms could taste very different and with lower intensity compared to a later picking from the same trees. That is why we decided to continue with this separation practice also in 2019 and I managed to select what I though was the very best of their Geisha lots.


We strongly recommend using the correct measurements and brewing techniques when you brew our coffees. Use a digital scale both to measure water and coffee in order to get consistent results, and we recommend using between 60 to 70 grams of coffee per litre (1000g) of water, depending on the brewing method, water quality and coffee used.


We strongly recommend using VST filter baskets. Both the 18g, 20g and the 22g basket is great for our coffee. The VST filters makes it a lot easier to extract the espresso properly which gives a lot more sweetness in the cup. They are also more or less identical to each other which makes it easy to be more consistent when brewing on several groups at the same time. You can buy the filters on our webshop, just make sure they fit your machine (ours fits all La Marzocco machines and machines with 58mm filter baskets). With the VST 18g filter basket, we recommend the following brewing parameters: 18-19g freshly-ground coffee, 25-35s brewing time, 35-38g of final brew liquid in the cup, 93°C-94°C brew water temperature.
