SEBASTIAN GOMEZ - Geisha - filter roast



Roasted Monday 24th January 2022

Sebastian had been living in Bogota for 8 years before returning home to take over the management of his fathers coffee farm.

His father had been growing commodity coffee but Sebastian convinced him to plant coffees that receive a better income like this Gesiha lot. 

After harvesting the cherries were fermented in plastic tanks for 36 hours at 23 {this encourages the formation of lactic acid} then sun-dried on raised beds at temperatures not exceeding 35.

*Geisha - In 1931 a British ambassador picked a selection of coffee berries in Southwest Ethiopia near a town called Gesha. In 1932 the seeds were sent to Kenya, then in 1936 seedlings were sent to Uganda & Tanzania. In the mid 50's seeds were sent to Costa Rica where trials began. In 1963 Don Pachi Serracin brought some seeds to Panama, but attempts to grow Geisha were axed due to poor taste.....{most likely caused by growing the plants at too low an altitude}. Geisha was then forgotten about until in 2002 Daniel Peterson decided to cup coffee from different parts of the farm & came across this extraordinary coffee we know as Geisha.
