Geisha is an extremely rare coffee varietal that has made waves in the past 5+ years for having what many coffee connoisseurs consider to be the most brilliantly complex and intense flavor profile of all. Originally brought to Costa Rica from the small town of Gesha in southwestern Ethiopia, the geisha made its way south to Panama, thanks to Don Pachi (Francisco Serracin), before becoming internationally acclaimed. These trees grow to be very tall and have beautiful, elongated leaves.

Turkish coffee is a method of preparing coffee where finely powdered roast coffee beans are boiled in a pot, with added sugar (depending on taste), before being served into a cup where the grounds settle.

It produces a cup thick enough to stand your spoon in. But seriously, if you like strong coffee with lots of body then this might be the coffee for you.
