At Gesha Village, we strive for uncompromising quality in each step of cultivation and processing. Our non-auction lots are intensely floral and fruity—signature elements of all our coffees—and we offer them through several channels and labels.
We meticulously select the coffees offered in our non-auction lots through a rigorous cupping process at our coffee lab in Addis Ababa. Following the official protocols of the Specialty Coffee Association, we evaluate the lots over several rounds of cupping to determine how they will be offered to buyers.
We have a diverse range of coffees with complex flavors from Gesha Village Coffee Estate offered in our various labels, from the extremely high-end and delectable Rarities to the delicately blended Chaka.
Read on for the details on each label.
Representing 10 percent of our total farm production, these exquisite coffees are full of complex flavors, and super rare. The Rarities are the top coffees Gesha Village produces outside of our auction lots, and they are frequently chosen for competition by internationally competing baristas.
These special micro-lots, accounting for 15 percent of our production, exhibit superior flavor attributes and excellent cup quality, scoring 88 points or above on the SCA’s 100-point scale.
These lots hail from a single farm area at Gesha Village. We provide full traceability information on each lot number featured in the Single-Terroir line, including the farm block name, coffee variety, and processing dates. Our minimum purchase for Single-Terroir coffees is a full lot, which can range from 20 to 40 bags.
For this line, we blend beautiful coffees from all of the estate’s farm block areas and from the entire production season. Available in natural or washed, coffees in the Chaka line offer a consistently delicious profile year after year. Minimum purchase for Chaka coffees is one container.
