Gesha (Single Origin)
This release is a one that we eagerly look forward to all year. For the familiar and unfamiliar alike, let's look at where this delicious plant comes from and what makes it one of the most sought after coffees in the world.
Gesha began as a wild Ethiopian genetic, but has been cultivated primarily in Central America for the past several decades. Traveling through Costa Rica and Panama, this coffee was re-discovered in 2004 in a best of Panama cupping competition. Ever since, Gesha has been sought after for its incredibly unique cupping profile despite its notoriously low plant yield. Not to mention its susceptibility to roya (coffee rust) and genetic instability! High demand and small production quantities has driven the price for Gesha as high as $80 per green pound. It's not uncommon to see this coffee sold for $12 a cup!
Gesha is unlike any other coffee cultivar; it retains some classically Ethiopian characteristics, but often tastes more like tea than coffee. Our washed Gesha from San Jeronimo Miramar is floral and bright, and reasonably priced! Tastes like blood orange, lemongrass, and butterscotch candy.
