Jasmine, Grape, White peach
Roasted on 19 October 2021
Adam Overton started Gesha Village in 2011, with the intention to bring the storied gesha variety back to coffee’s birthplace: Gesha, Ethiopia. Along with his wife, Rachel Samuel, and coffee educator, Willem Boot, Adam founded Gesha Village with a 500-hectare plot of land in Bench Maji, in close proximity to the Gori Gesha forest.
Refined and elegant — high level natural processing at its finest. Coffee cherries are hand picked and sorted, then placed on 30-metre high African raised beds with bed thickness that increases as the days pass. After the 12th or 13th day, the coffee is moved to shade drying. The total drying time depends on the environmental conditions, and for this lot the total number of days was 30. Even though this year’s total harvest was reduced due to the rains ending earlier than normal, we’re fortunate to be able to secure this special selection.
In the cup, expect the Gesha 1931 variety to shine through its jasmine aroma, with grape and sweet stone fruit like peaches rounding out the cup. Please enjoy an elegant mouthfeel and a long pleasant finish.
