There are very few farms that are both progressively modern and yet permanently tied to the past. When Rachel Samuel and Adam Overton began plotting the concept for the estate, they had one goal: to seek out wild growing Gesha plants, harvest seeds from ripe cherries, and cultivate a new generation of Gesha in Ethiopia. With the Gesha/Geisha variety pulling in record breaking green coffee prices at auctions every year in countries like Panama or Colombia, Adam and Rachel wanted to return to the roots of where the variety came from and help bring focus around this rare variety back to Ethiopia

This lot comes from the Gaylee section of the farm and is made up of Illubabor Forest 1974. This variety was chosen from the research center to be planted alongside the two Gesha varieties for its flavor profile, noted for it’s floral and citrus qualities, along with the variety’s consistent yield and disease resistance. Illubabor Forest 1974, as an heirloom coffee variety, has strong genetic diversity from developing naturally in the wild. By consciously pursuing biodiversity on the farm, Gesha Village is developing long-term sustainability with higher yields from the coffee trees, and better soil health and disease resistance barriers along the edge of the farm.

As a fully washed lot, this coffee was first picked and sorted for ripeness, then put through a de-pulping machine to remove the skin of each cherry. After de-pulping, the coffee goes through a demucilager to remove the main fruit off the coffee seed, and then the coffee ferments in a dry environment for 12 hours to break down any sticky leftover mucilage before heading into the washing channels. After washing, the coffee gets a 4 hour soak in water before being moved to shaded, raised beds for drying. A fully washed process helps bring a clean, balanced flavor profile forward for this lot of coffee, highlighting its sweet and sharp fruit qualities.
