What is Geisha Coffee?

You already know that the Geisha coffee variety is no ordinary variety: it is an originally African variety that has now made its way to coffee countries all over the world. It's a coveted rarity because of the small harvests it produces and its exotic, floral flavor profile. Great fame was gained by the Geisha, or Gesha - after its original place of discovery in Ethiopia - when a lot from Finca La Esmeralda in Panama was auctioned off at a record price. Since then, the variety is not only traded at impressively high prices, but also planted on more and more farms around the world, because the farmers see here the opportunity to be able to sell their coffee profitably. On the picture you see Geisha coffee plants in Malawi.

Do not be afraid of geisha coffee

Not only the price/quantity, but also the label "RARE" can be intimidating. What if the cup turns out to be nothing? How much room is there to dial-in and readjust? As a simple rule of thumb, we always recommend going by your proven recipe, and readjusting from there. So, by all means, (try) it out.

Cup of Excellence

The Cup of Excellence is the most important competition in specialty coffee. Farmers submit samples of their highest qualities, which are tasted and judged by independent jurors from the specialty coffee scene. The best coffees receive an award. A good score in the Cup of Excellence brings enormous attention to the farm and the farmer. This secures the order situation for the following years.
