The Gesha (or Geisha) varietal of the coffea arabica plant was originally collected from coffee forests in Ethiopia in the 1930s. The coffee came to prominence in 2005 when the Peterson family of Boquete, Panama, entered it into the “Best of Panama” competition and auction where it received exceptionally high marks and broke the then-record for green coffee auction prices at more than $20/lb. It is associated with extremely high cup quality when the plants are managed well at high altitude and is known for its delicate floral aromas and complex flavor profiles. Gesha varietals have become extremely sought-after in the world of specialty coffee, and we’re excited to have a chance to share some of this extremely small lot.

This coffee represents a first for us here at Servant, as it’s the first time we’ve been able to simultaneously offer two very unique coffees from the same producer. Another amazing coffee brought to us by our friends at La Real Expedición Botánica (LaREB), this coffee was grown in Southern Huila, Colombia, by Yoiner Mosquera and showcases more of the gorgeous flavors Geshas are known for. This coffee initially delights the pallet with a bright, sweet acidity reminiscent of starfruit, then rolls smoothly into the sweet yet tart flavors and juicy mouthfeel of red kiwi and finishes with the delicate florality of chamomile. Our other coffee from this producer, Yoiner Mosquera, is of the Colombia Rosado varietal, another very high-quality cultivar of the coffea arabica plant. The ability to try these two coffees side-by-side is a great opportunity to experience two very unique coffees grown in the same terroir (soil, altitude and geography) and experience the differences between the two cultivars.

This lot was grown at an elevation of 1700 MASL and is fully washed. The cherries undergo a 30-hour anoxic fermentation followed by 20 days of careful drying. We know this coffee may be a bit pricey for some, but we truly believe that this experience is worth every penny, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
