Description

Near the border of South Sudan, you find the wild, dense, and stunning forests of the Bench Maji zone. This is home to the radiant Gesha variety, a coffee that has the power to astonish coffee drinkers around the globe with sparkling clean profiles.

Rachel Samuel and Adam Overton started out making a documentary about coffee and ended up with their own coffee farm in Ethiopia.  Gesha Village was founded six years ago near the birth ground where the famed Panamanian Gesha was discovered.

Gesha Village is a 471-hectare farm with high elevation, ample rainfall, temperate climates, and fruitful ground. Rachel and Adam started to select wild Gesha plants from the Gori Gesha forest and planted these among the indigenous trees.  2000 coffee trees per hectare were paired with more than 30,000 native shade trees.  Their agroforestry farming approach creates a balance between the original environment and the commercial management of the farm.

Rachel and Adam started by selecting seeds harvested from the Gori Gesha wild coffee forest; the site where the famous Panamanian Gesha was first selected.  It is in the Bench-maji region and has been entirely isolated until the construction of a road a few years prior. This is way off the beaten path close to the Sudanese border, about a two-day drive from the more common growing regions (Sidamo, Yirgacheffe, Djimma).  It has the perfect microclimate and elevation for everything to come together for the perfect cup.
