Gesha Village is a 471-hectare coffee farm in Gesha, Ethiopia, with an astonishing elevation of 1,909-2,069 masl. This estate is divided into eight "blocks" for added transparency and traceability of terroir, where three different gesha varieties are planted and harvested. Each block has its own micro-climate and soil conditions, which result in the coffees developing unique characteristics specific to each block.
This particular lot is the Gesha 1931 (G31) variety, grown in Surma Block. Surma is named after the pastoralist ethnic group, the Surma, who inhabit the lowlands towards the southwest of the coffee estate. Coffees from Surma exhibit jasmine, strawberry, red apple, and delicate spices.
This coffee is processed as a Natural, with floaters removed and then sun-dried in thin layers on raised African beds with parabolic covers for 18-30 days. In this lot you will find wonderful Jasmine perfume, strawberry, and peach. Delicate and wonderfully clean natural coffee. Our favourite Surma lot from this year's harvest. Please enjoy!
