Gesha Village - 2017 Wet Processed


Bergamot on the nose ushers in a cup full of mouthwatering melon, berry, and plum over a brisk black tea base. This is an ultra-clean coffee whose processing allows for a distinct experience of the time and place this lot was created.

Gesha Village is a truly one-of-a-kind project in the Southwestern highlands of Ethiopia. The 2015-2016 Harvest year was their first ever harvest (they had a small crop the previous year, but it was very tiny due to the young plants). This lot is from the 2016-2017 harvest, their second harvest ever. This coffee has been held in deep freeze storage since it arrived in the States last year and tastes as fresh as it did the day it arrived. We feel honored to have been able to secure lots from both their first and second ever harvests and look forward to continuing our relationship with this impressive farm and group of people.
