Established in 2019, this farm and the Gesha region of Ethiopia is a less popular region among most green coffee buyers, especially when compared to the uber popular Yirgacheffe and Guji regions. The varieties that grow here are another story. The Gesha 1931 variety is acclaimed worldwide as one of the highest cup quality varieties available, and it’s sibling, the Gori Gesha variety rivals it in quality, and is one of the oldest known coffee varieties. This variety has origins in the Gori gesha Forest which is about a 20 minutes away from the farm at this lot comes from. This unique coffee went through carbonic maceration in a barrel for 96 hours before being taken to raised beds where it dried for 16 days to reach ideal moisture content. The Gesha region is a bit warmer than a region like Sidama, and because of that it is very easy for them to dry naturals here, compared to the Bensa region seeing extended times required for drying, slowing down some shipments this year. Because of this, naturals like this one are very clean in the cup, with more florals and citric notes.
