Geisha coffees are well known as the star of coffee competitions around the world, and right now, Fazenda is offering one in limited quantity. Geisha is an original variety of coffee discovered in the 1930’s in the mountains around the Southwestern town of Gesha, Ethiopia. The Geisha varietal found its way from Ethiopia all the way to a farm in Panama by Don Pachi in the 1960’s. Based on its reputation for producing an aromatic cup profile that fetched record high prices in consumer markets, it spread throughout Central America.
This rare plant found its way to the 70-acre farm and micro mill of Rafael and Lucia Sanchez, high in the Talamanca Mountains of the Tarrazu region of Costa Rica. Our Geisha coffee is from La Candelilla, an extraordinary place that has earned a reputation of producing consistent world-class coffees. In this coffee, we taste notes of green apple, cherry and caramel. Don’t miss your opportunity to try it while our limited supplies last — offered in 8oz bags!
La Candelilla is family-owned, and is a pioneer in the micro-mill movement in the Tarrazu, established in 2000. Tarrazu is not only the biggest coffee growing region in Costa Rica — they are also the largest producer. Most of their farms produce Caturra and Catuai and only a small percentage of the farm is planted with some select Geisha varietals.
This is your chance to see what Geisha’s are all about! It is truly unique and supplies will go fast - so pre-order today! We will be roasting on August 29th!
