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 Oma Block. Oma is named after the loved and respected religious leader of the Meanit people, who live in the area of Gesha Village's estate. Coffees from Oma exhibit tea rose, jasmine, peach, apricot, candied fruits, melon, and honeyed sweetness.
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 flavours such as floral perfume, peach, pineapple, bergamot, and darjeeling tea. So clean, so elegant. This is the highest scoring lot we have given to the 2019 harvest. Please enjoy!
