Panama Geisha is one of the most famous coffee varietals in the world. Originally this varietal comes from Ethiopia. The panamanian Gesha originates from the Gori Gesha and was brought to Panama in the 1930s. Adam Overton and Rachel Samuel had only one mission: bringing the Gesha coffee home. Together with the Meanit tribe - the local inhabitants and protectors of the Gesha forest - they produce several Gesha varieties to keep the rich biodiversity of the forest intact. Adam and Rachel keep a moderate planting density of 2000 trees per hectare. they also replanted deforested land with 30.000 shade trees to protect the coffee plants. This way, the cherries have more time to ripen which stimulates the development of the unique Gesha flavour. Nowadays Gesha Village is known worldwide for their amazing cup profiles, the lots are auctioned off yearly at record prices.
