Honey Process: Before starting the machine the processing manager checks the machine to make sure its clean and ready for pulping. Since the process is continuous once the machine starts running it needs a continuous follow up until the pulped coffee is over. By this type, the skin of the fresh cherry is physically removed by a pulper machine with addition of water, as with full-wash processing. After pulping, the coffee bypass the demucilager in order to get the pulped coffee with full mucilage. The following points are the quality control points to be reminded during pulping:
*We make sure the machine is properly clean before start pulping, on daily basis
*We make sure all the fermentation tank is clean and free from stinkers
*We make sure water used for pulping is clean and sufficient for pulping
*Before start pulping we tag the coffee ready for pulping by block names
*We make sure all the materials and labor we need is fulfilled
During this process, the pulped coffee is directly sent to raised African beds and distributed over the beds at athickness of 1cm for the first 3 days. At this point, the skin, black beans, broken beans by machine and green beans are sorted out. On the fourth day the coffee is sent to shade dried area and dried to 11% moisture.
Alexanders story: "I remember the first time I tasted a Gesha Village coffee"
It was to be used by a competitor at the World Barista Championship in Seoul 2017, and it tasted shockingly like strawberry candy! Since then, we have bought coffee from Adam and Rachel Overton and their Gesha Village! This year, we are super lucky to have gotten our hands on our 3 favorite lots!
Story: Gesha Village was established 10 years ago in Bench Maji Ethiopia close to the South Sudan border. Rachel Samuel and Adam Overton got the seedlings from the Gori Gesha coffee forest that is believed to be the place where Panamanian Gesha seedlings were collected.
Representing 10 percent of our total farm production, these exquisite coffees are full of complex flavors, and super rare. The Rarities are the top coffees Gesha Village produces outside of our auction lots, and they are frequently chosen for competition by internationally competing baristas.
At Gesha Village, they have two types of Gesha; Gesha 1931 which resembles genetically the Panamanian Gesha, and Gori Gesha heirloom which represents the genetic variety of Gori forest.
Gesha Village is separated into eight different "blocks" - based on micro-climate. The total farm size is 471 hectares. The elevation is btw 18-2100msl.
