    A superb example of an Ethiopian Gesha, with fragrant Earl Grey and jasmine notes, a bright acidity with flavours of grape, apricot and tangerine and an elegant tea like body. A cup of elegance and tantalizing aromas that will transport you to a unique origin. Enjoy an exquisite cup with every sip.

    This cup's legacy is rooted in the original Gesha. From the village spotted by a botanical mission, this '31 selection is a descendant of the Panamanian strain. Near the forests of coffee's genesis, admire the Surma block, named for the pastoral people of the area. Traditional sun drying for 28 days, with no intentional fermentation, brings out all that classic Gesha has to offer.

    About the Farm

    • Gesha Village is one of the most cherished coffee producers on the planet with 471-hectares in the Bench Maji zone of Ethiopia, nearby the town of Gesha and the Gori Gesha forest, the birthplace of the Gesha variety.
    • Owned and operated by Adam Overton, Rachel Samuel and Willem Boot, this project was started in 2007 and has quickly developed to be an idolized producer in the specialty coffee world. With ~320 hectares planted of Gesha 1931, Gori Gesha and Illubabor Forest varieties, throughout 8 different zones that correlate with unique terroir.
    • The eight different zones, or sub-farms, are named after nearby villages and important sites. You'll find, Bangi, Dimma, Gaylee, Oma, Narsha, Surma, Shewa-Jibabu and Shaya featured amongst Gesha Village offerings.
    • A mixed system of agroforesty practices are utilized, with mostly natural forests providing shade and introducing the coffee to a diverse wildlife and flora, which provide a symbiotic system of organisms. The soil is brown-red loamy and virgin forest.
    • This lot comes from the Surma block, which is named after the pastoralist ethnic group, the Surma, as a tribute to their cultural relevance in this area. This lot is Gesha 1931, fermented utilizing an open-air, cold temperature environment with whole cherry exposure for 60 hours. The coffee is then taken to dry for 26 days in raised beds under the sun.
