This is Alejandro, collecting the few cherries that are ripe on some very young trees on the highest lot in Helena. For now we use the coffee from up here to run experiments in fermentation times and other processing variables. Soon however we'll have the rare Gesha occupying this area.
If you were lucky enough to try the limited supply of Gesha at the Flight Coffee Hangar that ran out last week, then you'll know the mind-blowing intensity of flavour and aroma. Notes of berries, peach, and sweet citrus are common, while the fragrance is powerful florals and baking spice. Gesha is regarded by many the ultimate coffee variety.
Though some spell it Geisha, it has nothing to do with the Japanese entertainment. Gesha was discovered in Gesha, also spelt Geiscia, Geisha, Gesha, Gheccia, Gheiscia, Ghescia, Ghiscia, or Gēsha in Ethiopia.
