Melanie (Colorfull's green buyer) has cupped a lot of geshas in her 10-year career as a green coffee buyer and only one or two have stood out.

While not every coffee can or should be “mind-blowing” for a roaster to decide to buy it, the reason why she’s skeptical of geshas in general is because of the price points associated with them. She generally feels that what you get in the cup isn’t what you paid for. Also, Mexico as a coffee origin has not historically been where you go to get great coffees.
