About this coffee
Gesha Village. The Birthplace of Gesha. Once again we are excited to welcome these coffees into our portfolio. Gesha Village is an excellent project that merges the best of Ethiopian central washing station practices, with expert estate management and traceability.
Gesha Village in 2020 has been busy perfecting traditional coffee processing like Natural, Honey, and Washed. But they have also been playing with Carbonic Fermentation al la Beaujolais. This year we have secured their natural lots, as well as the carbonic macerated lots. We have received a mixture of 1931 Gesha, Gori Gesha and Illubabor Forest.
-Gori Gesha is the Gesha varietal found in Gesha Village forests.
-Gesha 1931 Resembles the ‘original’ Gesha found in Panama, selected based on cherry growth as well as bean size and shape
-Illubabor Forest is a disease resistant variety found in the namesake forest
Ethiopia in 2019/2020 Produced 7.35 Million Bags of coffee with 4 Million of that going to Export. It is the largest exporter of Coffee in Africa, an the 10th largest coffee producer in the world. Germany Takes the largest volume of Ethiopian coffee at 22% with Australia importing 2% of Ethiopia’s export output.
I bought this coffee wondering if it would be worth the money. I purchased “filter grind” and to be honest it works best in my AeroPress (when out hiking).
It’s a light and sweet coffee and worth every penny!!
