It’s Not Just About the Coffee

Gesha Village’s goal is to be the finest, most environmentally conscious coffee farm in Ethiopia, with uncompromising commitment to quality in every step of cultivation and processing, and the ultimate dedication to our employees and to our customers.

We seek to connect the world to Ethiopia and reveal all of its beauty within a perfect cup of coffee.

We believe in environmental responsibility

Agroforestry & Reforestation

At Gesha Village we feel a firm responsibility to preserve the environment in which we grow coffee, and we strive to minimize our impact as much as possible. Our agroforestry farming approach seeks to strike a balance between the commercial management of the farm and the original environment of the land, honoring our setting while producing a superior-quality coffee.

When we arrived at the land on which we built Gesha Village, about 25 percent of the land had been deforested. We paid special attention to revitalize the terroir with native trees that would function best in this environment. We conducted an environmental study from an agroforestry expert to advise us. We planted these trees at a moderate density of 2,000 trees per hectare, pairing them with more than 30,000 native shade trees to provide the proper balance of biodiversity and create a sustainable ecosystem for the coffee.

A Careful Approach to Water Usage

We view water as a precious resource, and the processing methods we employ are meant to use water in a responsible fashion. In our washed processing, we use modern eco-pulpers and demucilagers in order to use as little water as possible from the rivers. We use a recirculation system to further help our conservation, as well as an extensive natural treatment solution to filter the wastewater.

Repurposing Material

We also prioritize the reusing and recycling of materials. We compost all of the coffee pulp that remains from our washed-process coffee. In 2018, we installed new hulling equipment for our natural-process coffee, which allows us to reuse the dried coffee husk for mulching and sustainable fuel use.

Our community

Investing Locally

Through the Gesha Village Foundation, which we started in 2013, we’ve continued to support the two schools adjacent to Gesha Village with school supplies, sports equipment, desks and benches, construction materials for new bathrooms, and clinic supplies including solar lights, maternity gowns, and other necessities.

Farmer-to-Farmer Workshop

Gubalangi means “let’s relax and converse” in the Meanit language. In 2017, we started a yearly farmer-to-farmer think-tank workshop, titled Gubalangi, providing educational opportunities and information exchange to farmers. Hosted at the farm, these workshops are led by Gesha Village’s management team as well as visiting local and international specialty-coffee experts. The goal is to provide Ethiopian coffee farmers with information on farming best practices, challenges, and solutions, helping them work and grow together as a whole for the growth of the country’s coffee industry.

Weekly Coffee Me Up⁣ @geshavillage
(주간 커피미업) 안녕하세요. 커피미업 입니다.⁣
벌써 곧 6월입니다. 1년 중 절반이 가고 있다는 이야기군요 ㅠ 그래도 아직 5월의 따뜻한 봄이니까 ㅋ 즐거운 마음으로 하루하루 지냈으면 합니다.⁣
어쨌거나 이번주 '주간 커피미업'은 게샤빌리지 2020 뉴크롭 중 하나를 소개합니다.⁣ 바로 오마 게샤 Lot 074번 인데요.⁣
올해 초 제가 게샤빌리지를 다녀온 이후에 비즈니스커핑을 통해 20여가지 커피를 커핑했습니다.⁣ 이때 가장 많은 분들이 선택해주신 커피 2가지를 수입했는데요. 그 중 하나가 바로 이 커피입니다.⁣
내추럴 프로세스이고 품종은 게샤1931로 파나마 게이샤의 원종이 된 바로 그 품종이지요.⁣
게샤빌리지는 3개의 카테고리로 나뉘어지는데, 골드, 레드 그리고 그린라벨입니다.⁣
이 커피는 상위 10%만 선별된 골드라벨 카테고리에 있답니다.⁣
무엇보다 전세계에서 거의 가장 먼저 커핑을 진행한 덕분에 2개의 커피 모두 게샤빌리지 중에서 가장 좋은 커피들을 고를 기회가 되었던것이 행운이었습니다.⁣
그래서 이번주는 오마 074랏을 먼저 공개하겠습니다.⁣
다만 당시 비즈니스 커핑때 오신 분들이 공동구매로 미리 사전주문해두신 분들이 많아서 생두양이 넉넉치 않은점 양해부탁드립니다. (다음에 공개할 다른 랏은 상대적으로 여유가 있어요)⁣
에티오피아 중에서 높은 고도 뿐 아니라 밀도가 강하다보니 디개싱 시간이 꽤 필요한 점 참고하세요.⁣
로스팅도 비교적 까다로워서 저도 몇차례 실험을 하고 있다보니 원두 판매는 빠르면 내일, 늦으면 다음주 월요일부터 판매할 예정이고요.⁣
오늘은 생두부터 오픈합니다.⁣
커피미업 스토어에서 지금 구입하실 수 있습니다.⁣

It’s only right that I dedicate my first post to one of the first beans that really BLEW my mind away. It is the epitome of #specialtycoffee. - @geshavillage from @passengercoffee - It helped jumpstart my interest in #thirdwavecoffee. Up until that point I struggled to understand what people meant when they described all these flavor notes and varieties. Coffee just tasted like coffee to me. Not this one. My pallet was blasted with all different fruits. Raspberry, peach, lemon, apple. I couldn’t believe it could taste like this. There’s a whole other world of coffee to explore. There is A LOT more to it than people realize. Some people’s thing is wine, mine is coffee. I’m passionate about it. So on this page you will see any and everything related to this special drink: “Cawfee” (NY represent). I hope you enjoy! .

Black and White Coffee Roasters
We are so excited to release Gesha Village Honey from @geshavillage. This lot was picked up by us hoping to find it’s way to a competitor. Although this amazing quality coffee did not end up as a competition coffee, we wanted our community to experience this beautiful coffee. So we came up with an idea, “let’s just break even on this coffee and give some amazing coffee to people during these uncertain times.” We hope this coffee bring you joy, excitement, inspiration, community and much more! .
