- MORE INFO
A handful of small farms and a shared micro-mill. Owned and managed by Luis Alberto Monge Ureña, located in Tarrazú, Costa Rica.Originating from Ethiopia near the town of Gesha, this variety was made famous by Hacienda La Esmeralda in Panama in the early 2000s when it was “discovered” through a cupping competition when separated from other varieties. Gesha has a distinct floral-passion fruit flavor profile that makes it stand out against its other Central American counterpart varieties, but you’ll notice how incredibly similar the characteristics are to a washed Ethiopian coffee. Gesha is prized in the Latin American countries where it’s grown, but it doesn’t automatically turn out to be mind-blowing. There are good seeds and not so good seeds and all of the delicate details like soil health, weather and plant care that go into growing delicious coffee are still a factor! We think Luis did a great job with this lot, it’s tasty, tasty.
Available in 6oz tins.
