Sparkling lemon, earl grey tea, lychee
Stanley Chien (aka Bruce Lee), a multi-year coffee champion of Taiwan, visited the Ninety Plus Gesha Estates and tasted gesha coffee cherries for the first time. It reminded him fo the lychee fruit that grew in his backyard as a child. While considering the name of this coffee, we were listening to the talented cellist Yo Yo Ma. His precise and focused technique inspired us, and we decided to name the coffee by combining the notes of Lychee flavor with the name of Yo Yo Ma's musical instrument. Lycello expands on the traditional washed Panama gesha coffee flavor, utilizing innovative processing techniques to enhance aromatic complexity and depth in mouthfeel to balance this elegant coffee's sparkling, lemon-like brightness
