Hey Tanya, you’re right, Wush Wush is often called new Gesha coffee. This varietal originally comes from the fertile highlands of southwest Ethiopia, where rich and vibrant tea grows. But like Panama Geisha coffee, it quickly spread to South America and now it’s commonly grown in Colombia.
It is often compared to Geisha coffee beans in terms of having a taste that many have never experienced in coffee before.
It has been named one of the top coffees of 2020 and scored 96 points by SCA, which is even higher than Geisha beans!
A cup of Wush Wush coffee is described as richly aromatic, floral, highly toned with candy-like intensity. The common tasting notes include lychees, passionfruit, dark chocolate, sage, blueberries, vanilla, lavender, and unripe strawberries.
While Wush Wush has massive potential, experts think that it is not likely to take off as much as Geisha coffee did. Back then, when you define Geisha, it was unlike anything on the market and now it has a strong name behind it.
But Wush Wush has similarly unique tasting notes and floral aroma, so definitely try it along with cafe Geisha, when you get a chance!
