SOURCING

Originating in the forests of Ethiopia, the Geisha (or ‘Gesha’) variety has become the most sought-after and renowned coffee variety in the world. Gaining prominence through auction programs and selective cultivation in Panama, it has been planted across the world by farmers wishing to create their own expression of this famous, delicious coffee.

This Natural processed Geisha lot is cultivated at Finca Monteverde farm, located in Tolima, Colombia. Producer Giraldo Gutierrez Falla and the Gutierrez Falla family have grown this variety on their 15-hectare farm among other special coffee varieties such as Wush Wush, Red and Yellow Bourbons, and Moccas. The family has cultivated coffees at Monteverde for more than 70 years, and continues to excel in quality year after year.

This is the first year we have worked with, and purchased coffee from Giraldo and his family. During processing, ripe cherries undergo fermentation for 24 hours in an open system – when it reaches 35°C, it is passed through a cold water bath, then submerged for 40 hours, creating a total of 60 hours of fermentation. It is then dried for a period of up to 20 days, ensuring even drying to best express its tropical, berry and green tea-like qualities.

Origin

Tolima, Colombia

The Tolima region of Colombia is one of the more centrally located, coffee-producing regions of the country. Although many farms are located at high altitudes, with many 2000 metres above sea level, this region has historically been devastated by fighting between paramilitaries and guerilla forces. Today, it’s a region that is prosperous in coffee production among other agricultural products.

Tolima is Colombia’s third largest coffee- growing region, however accounts for roughly only 12% of Colombia’s coffee production. The majority of varieties grown in Tolima are Castillo and Colombia – however, there are many unique varieties cultivated, including this Geisha, which demonstrate both the innovation of the producers who work the land and the quality of the coffee they produce on it.
