This Geisha espresso provided us something like almost perfect espresso experience. This shot remarkably good, with very silky yet velvety thick mouthfeel and super vibrant Geisha flavors. Bright, juicy and very well balanced with vibrant notes of pomelo and jasmine (they came at the same time) and delicate stone fruit flavors in the finish. We can honestly say this espresso exceeded our expectation: the flavors were mind blowing and exciting but over all it was very well balanced and harmonized.
