Santa Lucia Geishas!(La Casona and El Triangulo)

Santa Lucia Geishas!(La Casona and El Triangulo)

Today we are so excited to post about our long term favorite coffee from our great friend/best coffee producer, Mierisch family!

We have been roasting their coffees since 2016, even before we launched a real ship in Tokyo. Though almost everything from them is in the finest quality, we especially used to love their Yellow Pacamara and Javanica. Since 2021, we are honored to roast their Santa Lucia Geishas (both Casona and Triangulo) and they became some of our flag ship coffee. We can honestly say they have been producing the best Geishas in the world these days. 

These Santa Lucia Geishas are renowned for a COE winning coffee in several times, most interestingly, each plot tastes different and 

We would say both El Triangulo and La Casona is equally great, La Casona is a very good classic Geisha yet El Triangulo is more tropical flavors forward and complex type.

Speaking of La Casona, we just released a new profile version which is perfumed and bursting with crazy jasmine notes, we are mainly talking about the former batches of La Casona in this blog post. We are getting the most vibrant and distinct jasmine notes from the new profile La Casona, highly recommended.

V60 reviews

La Casona(old profile) on V60, we found a sweet lemon notes first with pleasantly mild acidity   followed by perfumed notes of melon accompanied by hints of green tea and jasmine florals got pronounced when it's completely chilled.

On the other hand, in the cup of El Triangulo, vibrant jasmine florals came out first then follow by bright notes of grapefruit with lavender notes and underlying sweetness of peach. 

We would say La Casona old profile on V60 was a very elegant classic Geisha yet El Triangulo is very complex vibrant type that was dancing on our taste buds.

Espresso reviews

El Triangulo delighted with bright lime acidity balanced out by peach and chocolate sweetness and then jasmine in the finish.

La Casona espresso was bursting with flavors of lime accompanied by jasmine florals and delicate long lasting finish of green tea. We also got sweet melon flavors when it's chilled completely.

(NEW)With a new roast profile, La Casona delivers tons of jasmine florals from the dry(coffee grounds aroma) to 60mins on timer after pouring. La Casona is bursting and perfumed with super distinct jasmine notes with hints of lime, balanced out with bold sweetness of peach.
