I love a washed Colombian coffee. Weather it was the washed Colombian gesha I used to win the Swedish Barista Championship or something more experimental. This washed Gesha has absolutely everything I look for in a high quality coffee.
Coffee: El Obraje Washed Gesha, harvested in late November 2021.
Taste description: In the cup you can expect notes of hibiscus, peach, green apple with an elegant and wonderful structure.
Always fresh: This item contains 100 grams divided into 2 x 50 grams of whole beans roasted, packed and shipped on demand for maximum freshness.
Story: The gesha variety produced by Pablo Andres Guerrero at Hacienda El Obraje in Nariño, Colombia, is one of our favorites. Last year, Pablo and the team at El Obraje won 1st place at the Cup of Excellence of Colombia 2021!
This gesha variety got the highest scores and also broke records in terms of price for the green coffee at €250/kg! We are thrilled to be able to share this fresh crop, natural processed gesha from El Obraje.
Pablo started planting the gesha variety at El Obraje exactly 10 years ago back in 2011 and as the farm is located at an unusually high altitude at 2200mls it can be very challenging to farm coffee. But obviously, they have figured it out by now and after having roasted both the washed and the natural gesha from them, we are endlessly impressed by what they achieve year after year
