    This coffee's cup profile is characterized by a sophisticated citrus acidity, with the essence of mandarin and tangerine taking the spotlight. These citrus notes are complemented by a velvety smoothness reminiscent of rooibos tea, along with a honey-like sweetness that harmonizes the flavors. The coffee culminates with a sticky marmalade finish, leaving a lasting impression on your palate.

    Sourced from the Surma block, which pays homage to the pastoralist ethnic group, the Surma, for their cultural significance in the area, this lot comprises Gesha 1931 beans. The coffee is processed as a traditional natural, with no intentional fermentation employed. It undergoes a meticulous drying process, resting on raised beds under the sun for 28 days, allowing its unique character to fully develop.

    *Please note that Gold Series coffees are excluded from regular discounts & promotions.

    About the Farm

    • Gesha Village is a renowned coffee producer situated on a vast 471-hectare estate in the Bench Maji zone of Ethiopia, near the town of Gesha and the Gori Gesha forest, which is the birthplace of the prized Gesha coffee variety. This project is owned and operated by a team consisting of Adam Overton, Rachel Samuel, and Willem Boot. It was initiated in 2007 and has rapidly risen to become an esteemed producer in the specialty coffee industry. The estate boasts around 320 hectares of coffee planted with Gesha 1931, Gori Gesha, and Illubabor Forest varieties, distributed across eight distinct zones, each characterized by unique terroir.
    • These eight zones, often referred to as sub-farms, are named after nearby villages and significant locations. Among the Gesha Village offerings, you'll come across Bangi, Dimma, Gaylee, Oma, Narsha, Surma, Shewa-Jibabu, and Shaya.
    • The cultivation practices at Gesha Village are rooted in a mixed system of agroforestry, predominantly relying on the natural forests to provide shade for the coffee plants. This approach also encourages a diverse range of wildlife and flora to coexist harmoniously with the coffee plants, creating a symbiotic ecosystem of organisms. The soil at the estate is brown-red loamy, with much of it remaining in a pristine, virgin forest state.
