Jamison Savage and Savage Coffees have become nearly synonymous with the best coffees in the world. We are super fortunate to be able to bring you the "Parabolic Gesha" from Morgan Estates, produced by Jamison Savage. It has been crazy to watch our Black Label concept evolve from a rarity to becoming integral to our vision (exceptional coffee, kept simple).
Savage Coffees rode the wave of initial hype surrounding the Gesha variety in Panama and have since been pushing the limits of flavor with intense processing methods. Extreme attention to detail is required to ensure that high-impact fermentation does not go awry and ruin a lot of coffee.
For this lot, fresh coffee cherries were held in hermetically sealed fermentation tanks for more than 100 hours. Inside the tanks, CO2 is quickly built up and pushes out any oxygen, creating an anaerobic fermentation environment. Both the pH and temperature of the ferment are carefully monitored to ensure the best product.
The fermented coffee cherries are then dried inside of controlled dry houses on African-style raised beds. Even drying and the consistency of the dry houses are key to unlocking all of the flavor potentials of the anaerobic natural process. At Savage Coffees, everything is down to science.
Some of the flavors found in this coffee are entirely new to our palates, and that is super exciting! The most common distinction of the Gesha variety is its intense florality, and florals are certainly present in this cup. We also taste lemon verbena and strawberries. Fermented stone fruit flavors make an appearance in the form of plum wine; the coffee is incredibly sweet, tasting of wildflower honey. As for the new flavors we're experiencing... you'll just have to try it to find out for yourself!
