Ghostlight Coffee is teaming up with Cincinnati’s Deeper Roots Coffee to offer some of the highest-quality coffees that the Miami Valley has ever had the opportunity to brew and taste. On Friday, November 22, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., the coffee roasters from Deeper Roots will be at Ghostlight at Night to offer a flight of three spectacular heirloom coffees.
The star of the evening will be Panama’s Finca Mama Cata Geisha. This is a rare opportunity to try this coffee, as only 100 pounds of this coffee will be available anywhere in the world. Finca Mama Cata has found great success in mastering the cultivation and careful processing of the world’s most prized coffee variety, Geisha. Deeper Roots purchased this lot in the prestigious 2013 Panama Geisha Auction. The Geisha coffee varietal is highly sought after for it’s breathtaking clarity of aromatics. The Mama Cata starts with fresh jasmine and ripe melon. Its a juicy, mouthwatering cup reminiscent throughout of tropical fruits and the round, creamy body finishes with an elegant crispness. Ghostlight owner Shane Anderson shares that when he sells Geisha it will be $46 for 8 oz whole bean.
The baristas will be brewing two additional heirloom coffees, Nicaragua’s San Jose Javanica (citrus blossom, caramel candy, sweet tobacco) and Aylele from Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia (floral notes with tastes of apricot, white tea). There will also be samples of sharable snack plates, including Ozro & Ray’s Bagel Chips & Green Chili Sweet Corn Hummus and Thistle Confections Biscotti.
The cost of the tasting event with the roasters is $10.50, which includes the three-coffee flight and snacks. The three coffees will be available to purchase for home brewing as well. This event takes place in the Leo Bistro at the Dayton Art Institute, home of the new Ghostlight at Night coffee bar.
