Gesha Espresso Capsules

A deep, complex cup of layered flavour and florals.

Resting high on the western slopes of the Cordillera mountains, overlooking the beautiful Cauca river valley, El Zacatin has become a beacon of exceptional specialty coffee in the Antioquia region of Colombia.

Perhaps the most traditional coffee producing department of Colombia, Antioquia runs alongside the steep mountains of the Andes, with all sizes of farm dotted across the landscape, from small plots to large estates. Many producers still use traditional methods, like the transport of coffee via mule and only planting the varieties developed for the region by the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation. In recent years however, a number of farmers have implemented new systems, with wet mills and the latest agronomic innovations being installed.

The family-owned seventeen hectare farm is now in it’s third generation, with Eduardo Fernandez-Restrepo the current proud caretaker. Pursuing a clear vision over the last five years, he has brought the quality of the farm’s crop to a truly outstanding level. Over this time Eduardo’s charismatic personality and interest in non-traditional coffee tree varieties has connected him with like-minded producers, leading to the exchange of both farming knowledge and seeds.

From among stunning Tabi, Pink Bourbon and SL-28 lots, we have selected this naturally processed Gesha offering, the seeds of which were gifted from Santa Maria farm in Buesaco, Nariño. Originally grown on just two hectares of the farm, this area of production has now blossomed with large resources now directed at these more complex, unique cultivars.

After selective handpicking and quality sorting, the cherries are placed in tanks for 24 hours to aerobically ferment, immediately followed by sealed 24 hour anaerobic fermentation. After this stage, 30 days of raised-bed drying allows moisture content to reach 11% before packing for export.

        

Capsules are retailed in boxes of ten and our recommended retail price for Gesha Capsules is £10.00
