Geisha or Gesha variety, originates from the town of Gesha, Ethiopia. Coffee berries were then picked and transported to South America in the 1950s. A washed-process is one of the three primary methods to produce the coffee and extract the exotic bean. Washed or wet processed coffee are dried without the cherry. They are prized for their clarity and vibrant notes. Removing all of the cherry prior to drying allows the intrinsic flavors of the bean to shine without anything holding them back. Fruit notes are still found in washed coffee, however, fermented notes and berry notes are less common.
This coffee comes from GRISINI’s adopted farm which is located in the Tapias River Slope region in the municipality of Neira-Caldas, Colombia. They are part of the Coffee Cultural Landscape, declared by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site. The estate has a long tradition in coffee production. It was in the 1930s that the first coffee plants were cultivated in these hills and have been renewed ever since.
