Here at NEAT we have never bought or roasted a coffee of the variety known as "Gesha" or "Geisha." The coffees tend to be quite expensive given the hype surrounding their extremely unique flavor profile with florals, citrus and tea-like qualities.
While Gesha is genetically rooted in Ethiopia, it is now being cultivated all over the coffee producing world. It often demands an extremely high price...though even for some lots whose quality is less than deserving.
This particular lot comes from a family in Divino Niño, Suaza, Huila, Colombia. The Cantillo family consists of brothers Eugenio and Isaías, their cousin, Edgar Garcia Ossa, and the son of Isaás, Jose Manuel. All of their farms are right next to one another and they are an extremely tight knit community. We have been visiting them for several years yet this is the first lot we have put on our menu.
Each of them cultivates and maintains small amounts of this rare variety. Instead of carrying extremely small and logistically challenging lots from each of them, it made more sense to create a slightly larger lot of each of their Gesha lots. The result is a fascinating and complex flavor trip.
Despite the price point, we hope that you will try this extraordinarily unique coffee.
