This one is not your average coffee blend. Our sourcing partner took three tiny Gesha lots not worth to export on their own and blended them based on their similar taste profiles. All of the three Gesha lots are processed by the wet method and produced by smallholders from the municipality of Pitalito, Huila.
The producers of this Gesha blend are Silvio Gomez Chaux (Finca El Mirador), Lenis Valderrama Gonzalez and Carlos Imbachi (Finca Buenavista). Silvio inherited the land from his father who divided the 50 hectares farm between his 7 children. Silvio learnt everything from his father, so we can say that coffee is in his veins. He mostly working alone, hiring temporary workers only when the harvest comes. Among his goals is to finish in the top 10 of the Cup of Excellence, which he once participated but was unable to make it to the top. Lenis grows coffee on 8,3 hectares including the Gesha variety, which he has raised from seeds brought from Panama. Lenis is working together with his family, wife, kids and dad. Carlos' farm, Buenavista, is located on a mountaintop at 1,800 meters above sea level, where he grows mainly Caturra, but has also recently planted some Gesha trees. Carlos is a true role model in the family, thus his sons also stayed on the farm and carry on the successful family business.
This is a unique opportunity to try this coffee with notes of jasmine, lemon and green tea! ☕️
