Back in 2013 when I (Oskar) competed in the Swedish National Championship I based my routine on the discussion of if the producers should make naturals of the hyper exclusive coffee variety gesha!
Back then a natural gesha was something crazy and a no-go zone for many farmers and producers.
Why "destroy" a delicate gesha with a heavy handed processing? 🤨
I started the presentation by asking the judges to vote if I should serve the washed gesha or the natural processed one. This was perceived as quite controversial, but it paid off 💪🏻
The judges voted 4-1 for the washed gesha for the semi finals and the next day chose the natural processed gesha for the presentetion in the finals 🎉
It all tasted good, and I won the Swedish National Championship, something that I'm extremely honored and proud of 🥇
The coffees that I used in my routine was a washed Cerro Azul from Café Granja La Esperanza in Colombia 🇨🇴and the natural gesha was Perci Red produced by Ninety Plus Coffee in Panama 🇵🇦
Today almost 10 years later - we are thrilled to be able to send all you subscribers, ambassador and Team Standout Coffee family the best of both worlds!
