About Geisha Village Coffee Estate
In the far western reaches of Ethiopia, mere kilometers from the South Sudanese border, lie the dense, wildly sprouting jungles of Bench Maji zone. It’s a place of stunning natural beauty, where from a high-extending plateau one can take in the expanse of the ancient, sprawling forest. This breathtaking landscape is home to Gesha Village Coffee Estate, the 471-hectare coffee farm we have built from the ground up over the last six years. This has been our labor of love, and we’re extremely proud to be producing coffees as awe-inspiring as our surroundings.
The Original Geisha
These seeds were gathered from the Gori Gesha coffee forest, located 20 kilometers from our farm. Through historic expedition research and genetic testing, this location in Gori Gesha has been determined to be the collection site of the Panamanian Geisha.
Gesha 1931: This is a selection made from the diverse forest population that closely resembles the Panamanian Geisha. This selection was made by looking at the plant morphology, bean shape and size, as well as its cup profile.
Gori Gesha: This original heirloom variety replicates the genetic diversity within the Gori Gesha forest. These seeds were harvested in 2011 through our own expedition. Donec ullamcorper nulla non fringilla.
The Natural Process Method
In this process, the coffee is sun-dried with the whole coffee cherry intact in thin layers on raised African beds. A parabolic plastic cover is used in the evening for increased air-flow to the coffee. The coffee undergoes 18 to 30 total drying days in the natural process.
