Gesha Village is a world-renowned coffee producer and recognised globally for the level of coffee produced.
Owned and operated by Adam Overton, Rachel Samuel and Willem Boot. The project was born out of a trip in 2007, where Adam and Rachel were making a documentary about Ethiopian coffee, before seeking Willem's knowledge on coffee production and returning to find the perfect location to begin.
The Gesha Village Coffee Estate is located in the Bench Maji zone, Ethiopia. It is near the town of Gesha, which is where the variety gets its name. The coffee grows amongst the forest, shaded by the natural canopy, which encourages a diverse ecosystem of natural flora and fauna. Amongst the trees, they grow a 3 varieties, Gori Gesha, Illubabor Forest and, this one, Gesha 1931.
Gesha Village is divided in to 8 different zones, each with unique characteristics - Bangi, Dimma, Gaylee, Oma, Narsha, Surma, Shewa-Jibabu and Shaya.
This lot comes from the Narsha block, which is the smallest block of the farm at a size of 5.3 hectares and gets its name from an indigenous tree in the area. This Gesha 1931 has no intentional fermentation stage, and is a natural process. The coffee is dried for 28 days in raised beds under the sun.
In the cup you'll find flavour notes of orange blossom, apricot and pink grapefruit. It's complex, floral and extremely clean.
