 THE STORY BEHIND

A unique, exquisite, and very rare coffee - zesty citrus, notes of jasmine and bergamot with a delicate mouthfeel. Panama Gesha is prized around the world for it's award winning distinct taste.

Geisha is often associated with Panama, where it first shot to fame - but it has actually only been grown there since the 1960s. In fact Gesha’s story began several decades earlier in Ethiopia, when it was ‘discovered’ in the 1930s in the mountains around the southwestern town of Gesha.

La Berlina Gesha is an heirloom varietal from the Boquete region of Western Panama. If you ask any true coffee aficionado about this coffee, their ears perk up! It is renowned in the coffee world.

To say we are excited to share what is revered as the world's best coffee is an understatement. We are humbled each time it is roasted.

GESHA VARIETY
Gesha is a variety of coffee crop under the Genus of Arabica. Originally found in Ethiopia by Mount Gesha and hence name Gesha, its roots are from Ethiopia. One of the first experiments at bringing this variety out of Ethiopia occurred in Panama and Costa Rica. The challenges in getting the Gesha (then named Geisha by Spanish speakers) to grow and produce coffee cherries were immense. Once these challenges were overcome the results in the cup were unlike any coffee ever tasted. The Geisha provides a high level of complexity with a delicate almost tea like body. With its generally elongated beans and distinctive floral and chocolate cup, the Gesha variety continues to distinguish itself as one of the world’s most unique coffees.
