Gesha Village Estate started in 2011. It is located just a few miles from the Gesha variety’s birthplace in the Gori Gesha forest, near the Sudan-Ethiopia border. The lot we are offering is 100% “Gesha 1931” variety – closely resembling the famed Panamanian Gesha in plant morphology, bean shape and size, as well as cup profile.
The natural processed micro-lot we chose took us by storm for its complexity and clarity. Here is a natural processed Gesha that allows all the delicate varietal and terroir notes to sing, unimpeded. Such subtlety and nuance in a natural is very rare, in our experience. We believe this delicate balance is due to an unusually prolonged intensely dry harvest season, allowing the enveloping fruit to dry with a minimum of microbiotic ferment. The natural processing coats the coffee with a gentle translucent glaze of fruit-tinged butterscotch.
Orders must be placed by 6:00am (Eastern Time) on their roasting date.
We open the cart availability for each limited edition roast on the Friday afternoon before the date of roasting
