We are stoked to bring back another stunning gesha lot from Pablo Guerrero's farm, El Obraje!
Pablo Guerrero’s farm Hacienda El Obraje is one of the most stunning properties in the mountains of the Nariño department. Mr. Guerrero’s background in architecture leads him to approach coffee from both passionate and pragmatic angles, applying planting and processing strategies designed for long term farm health.
El Obraje is equipped with a small but extremely tidy wet mill on the property. Coffee processing begins as soon as the cherries are harvested. Geisha plots were harvested between February and May of 2018 as cherries ripened slowly, then dried on the raised beds of the solar dryer for an average of 30 days.
This particular lot is naturally processed, and although it is not overly fruit-forward like many natural coffees, it definitely presents some wonderful wine-like fruit characters along with the more quintessential gesha flavours of mango and jasmine.
Complex, sweet, and special. Hats off to Pablo, and we look forward to offering more extraordinary lots from him in the future!
