Not a place, not the name of a mid 1970s Bond girl, nor even a line of heroin, although perhaps it should be. Bambito Gesha is a lavender resonant extravaganza of a washed coffee, manicured to perfection, and served in Pour Over style, at Hong Kong’s Cupping Room (review to follow in a future edition).
We are informed it hails from Panama. It certainly has hints of the sweet aromas of that sticky clime. On the sip it tangles and feels a tad naughty: more Hungarian dessert wine, than the Riesling of its description. Its pristine complexity is just reaching for a romantic entanglement in the early evening, more one suspects, than the attentions of this sole late afternoon workaday correspondent. Suggest enjoying while the going is good. The Cupping Room
