Tasting Notes: Bergamot, apricot, lime, peach, cane sugar
Once you have the unique experience of drinking a Gesha, it becomes clear why it is one of the most sought varieties by coffee enthusiasts. Ethereal, elegant and perfect are some of the words that coffee enthusiasts have used to describe this coffee. Known for its pronounced fruit and floral flavors you can expect a wide range of taste notes like berry, lemon, orange, grapefruit, mango, jasmine and bergamot. Originally from the coffee forests in Ethiopia, the Gesha tree traveled all the way to Panama in the 60s and came to prominence in 2004 after winning the first prize in the Best Of Panama (BOP) competition.
Our Gesha comes from the Santa Felisa Farm in Guatemala. Established in 1904, Santa Felisa Farm has maintained the founding values of integrity, quality, loyalty and justice. The Farm is now run by the fourth generation siblings under the guidance of the visionary agronomist, ecologist & Q-Grader Anabella Meneses.
Since 2010, Anabella has been researching innovative methods to develop different flavors during the fermentation and drying process. This dedication and passion was rewarded with the 1st place prize in the 2017 Cup of Excellence.
We are so honored and proud of being partners with smallholder farmers like Santa Felisa. Their commitment to quality, gender inclusion, the environment, and the communities around the farm inspires us to keep going forward. In a moment when the coffee world is searching for ways to improve its ways, Santa Felisa is one of the trailblazers changing things for the better.Farm Name: Santa Felisa
