We are so excited this year to build on our relationship with Adam and Rachel Overton and bring in more amazing coffees from Gesha Village in Ethiopia.
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.
While our first lot from 2018's harvest has sold out in a matter of weeks, we are very happy to offer additional (and very different) lots from this year's harvest.
This particular lot is the Gesha 1931 (G31) variety, grown in Oma Block (where our last year's lots #51 and #72 were from as well). 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. This lot exhibits wonderful range of complex fruit characteristics while maintaining a very clean cup. When it's hot, look for citrus fruits, and as the cup cools, tropical fruits emerge. Please enjoy!
