Coffee Story

This spectacular coffee comes for the Narsha farm section of the celebrated Gesha village. The sole washed Gesha offering in the 2019 Pride of Gesha auction, this coffee is sparkling with prolonged floral notes, orange blossom, watermelon and lemon zest. Coffee Review says: "Exhilarating, bright, balmy: like drinking a spring day...

About Gesha Village. In western Ethiopia near the South Sudanese border lies Gesha Village Coffee Estate, a 471 hectare coffee farm built by Rachel Samuel (born in Ethiopia), coffee-great Willem Boot, and Adam Overton. The one-of-a-kind Gesha Village Coffee Estate is located in close proximity to the renowned Gori Gesha Forest, known as gesha's birthplace and site of the Panamanian Gesha discovery in the 1930s.

Farm beginnings. The gesha village founders spent months searching for just the right location-with high elevation, ample rainfall, ideal climate- to launch their coffee farm. Once they found their location, the team harvested seed selection of wild Gesha plants from the Gori Gesha forest and spent months transforming their remote piece of land into a working coffee farm capable of producing some of the world's best Gesha coffee. Once disconnected form the global specialty coffee market, Western Ethiopia is now on the map as home to Gesha Village Coffee Estate and the team continues to focus on their mission of revival, community, and innovation. 

Coffee Review

94 pts      Aroma: 9    Body: 9    Flavor:   Acidity/Structure: 9    Aftertaste: 8

Blind Assessment: Subtly and sweetly intense: flowers and cocoa. Lavender, cocoa, honey, candied nut, lemon zest, much more in aroma and cup. Richly and sweetly pungent in structure; light though plush and satiny in mouthfeel. A quiet, layered finish consolidates around lemon and lavender.

The Bottom Line: Exhilarating, bright, balmy: like drinking a spring day with a cocoa chaser.
