FYI- this coffee is exclusive to @proudmarycoffee , and is from Finca Los Bellotos. This varietal is similar to the Geisha, due to its floral aroma, and fruity flavours…. And DNA analysis showed that the varietal shares 71% of its genes with Gesha. The varietal ‘Bernardina’ was named after the farm manager of the Los Bellotos estate.
Floral aroma, with Turkish delight notes.
