Blended Geisha? We got to have a chat with the barista at Congrats Café, and while discussing their coffee offerings, we noticed that they chose to blend Geisha with other coffees. This is quite unusual, so we naturally asked them “why?” They said it’s a beautiful flavor which they believe is not lost when you blend it. And that because it’s very expensive, blending it allows for more people to taste it on a day to day basis.
Interesting approach, one we’re not sure we agree with. It is a special experience to drink Geisha on its own. However, they were not wrong, the Geisha blends were pretty good in Congrats Café — but it does make you wonder how must better they are just on their own as a single origin. Jury’s out on this one. What do you think: should geisha coffees be used in blends?
