For the third year in a row, we continue 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.

During their first four harvest seasons, Gesha Village has worked hard to get their fundamental processing protocols right – and applied consistently year after year.  As a brand new farm, established in 2011, this was incredibly important – especially when many of the world’s foremost coffee producing estates are generations-old. 

Now into their fifth year of harvest, Adam and Rachel have moved into more experimental processing methods.  While some in the industry have pointed to these processing experiments as merely a hot, current trend, Adam sees it in a different light: "Any modern farm needs to have a progressive, experimental side to them.  But Gesha Village is looking to maintain the house style we have cultivated, while pushing the flavour profile envelope further."  From our perspective, the coffees Gesha Village has been producing so far is stellar in terms of quality, and that's a pretty significant argument against doing something that alters the intrinsic character too significantly.
