Our final release of the season from Gesha Village is a dry fermentation experimental lot from the Bangi area of the estate.
Gesha Village Estate is an exciting and inspiring new project from Adam Overton and Rachel Samuel, with the help of many talented individuals. In the short two years that we've been working with them they've won numerous awards and accolades worldwide for the quality of their coffees. The estate is located near the Gori Gesha forest in far western Ethiopia, near what is considered the origin of the Gesha lineage that has since traveled so far.
There is so much to say about this project. Adam and Rachel did lots of homework and exhaustive research--including genetic studies--before planting their first Gesha seeds in this location. In addition to seeds from the Gori Gesha forest, the estate has an experimental plot to study indigenous coffee varieties.
In the cup, these coffees are supremely elegant. They lay soft on the pallet and have amazing complexity. We are proud to be one of the few US roasters to offer them.
