Juan Saldarriaga owns and runs the 26 hectare El Encanto farm in Antioquia, Colombia. He is deeply invested in growing the highest quality coffees in the region. Antioquia is generally known for growing more mellow muted coffees, and Juan is trying to break that mold. There are a number of firsts with this coffee, this is Juan's first go at growing Gesha, it is also the first Gesha that Root&Branch has roasted. Being washed and dried on raised beds in a greenhouse allows for even drying, while providing clarity and nuance in the cup.This coffee has a full syrupy body, unique for a Gesha. The acidity is pronounced with a pleasing bite up front similar to granny Smith apple. I also find bright tropicals like green mango and papaya, and floral whispers of rosehip and hibiscus
