Why we Love this Coffee:

We’ve been working very hard to create space in our lineup for more premium offerings. The kind of coffees that you don’t just find any ole where in your daily walk about. The kind of coffees that hit your lips and alter your brain chemistry forever. Well, this is one of those coffees. It’s an absolutely outrageous coffee from the incredible folks at Finca La Reserva in Colombia. The process has all the buzzy buzz words for a REASON. It’s a bespoke 96 hour anaerobic honey processed Geisha. This means that it carries with it the incredible fruit of a natural but the clean profile of a washed coffee, all while being mind bindingly bright, fruity and punchy. This coffee works well on all brew methods, but it is roasted extremely delicately to make the most impression on manual brewing. We hope you love it as much as we do.

More About this Coffee

Finca La Reserva
In the department of Antioquia, Finca La Reserva sits atop the mountains at a dizzying 2000 meters above seal level. When Juan Felipe, La Reserva’s pioneering producer, came on board, he realized the potential of the the land.
 
In 2018, Juan Felipe began executing his long-term plan for the estate. By employing best practices in harvesting and innovation processing, he made La Reserva into a specialty coffee powerhouse.
 
However, La Reserva is not only about innovation in processing and award-winning cup profiles. Juan Felipe is particularly proud of his conservation efforts and finding the balance between high-quality production and caring for the farm’s 200 hectare’s of protected forests. The forest hosts thousands of native species and provides a sanctuary for endangered Andean bears.
 
What Is Geisha Coffee?
Geisha coffee beans are a variety under the Arabica coffee species. It’s also one of the most highly coveted varieties in the world, valued for its incredibly distinct flavor profile that includes delicate floral notes and tea-like character. The trees are naturally low-yielding and can be difficult to cultivate due to their sensitivity, adding to the rarity of geisha coffee beans available on the market.
 
Gesha coffee, as it was originally known, was collected from the Gesha region in Ethiopia and brought to Central America in 1953 as T2722, the variety we know as Panamanian Geisha today. Since experiencing exceptional success at the “Best of Panama” auction and gaining acclaim over the decades, gesha/geisha coffee beans are now being cultivated in many origins around the world.
 
This delicious honey process Colombian geisha from Finca La Reserva boasts an incredible flavor bouquet featuring floral notes of jasmine, lavender, and rose, with fruity and tea-like characteristics of strawberry, white grape, and green tea.
 
96 Hour Honey Process Coffee
In this bespoke process, ripe red Gesha variety coffee cherries were harvested and floated to sort out less dense beans. Afterwards, the cherries were depulped but some of the mucilage was left intact. The coffee was then fermented anaerobically in hermetically sealed 200-liter tanks for 96 hours. Following, the coffee was fully sun dried.
 
The honey process lies between the natural and washed process. Similar to the washed process, coffee cherries are depulped. However, in the honey process some fruit is kept on the beans in the drying process. The result is usually a coffee retains some fruitiness and sweetness – like a natural - but with a cleaner profile and less fermented flavors – like a washed coffee.
