Lola, Colombia Geisha
Lola is an elegant Colombia Geisha. She is beautiful and complex. Her unique scent is of Lemon Myrtle, a bushtucker plant native to subtropical rainforests of Queensland, Australia. Her complex aroma is partly due to her genetics, growing environment and deligent processing. She comes from the Agua Negra village within the Huila region of Colombia. Her growing altitude is around 1650 masl which is the same level as her famous neighbour La Esmeralda Geisha of Panama.
Farmers Claudia and Rodrigo Samboni let Lola rest for 12 hours after harvesting. She is pulped and left to ferment for another 48 hours in the dry fermentation tank. They then carefully wash her to remove all excess mulcilage. Finally, she is dried in direct sunlight for 3 to 4 days before being moved under the canopies for another 22 to 23 more days.
