Clever Coffee has secured the premiere Geisha coffee offering from the farm Hacienda Misiones in Colombia. This is a coffee experience out of the ordinary, and an experience you will not want to miss. The coffee delivers everything that we are familiar with from the Gesiha variety, showing off what makes Geisha something very special. In the cup you’ll experience a bounty of floral notes with jasmine and bergamot and at the same time, taste of tropical fruits. This is a cup of coffee that you should sit quietly with so that you have time to immerse yourself in how the taste is constantly evolving as the temperature changes
Geisha has its origins in Ethiopia and you can clearly taste it. Geisha was first discovered in the small village of Gesha as far back as 1931 and was imported to Panama back in the 1960s.
In 2004, a Geisha coffee was named the winner of the Best of Panama competition. From here, it gained more and more attention in various coffee competitions around the world, and has found a home in most coffee-producing countries in Central America. Geisha has for a number of years been a preferred coffee for use in barista competitions, as the taste is distinct and easy to recognize. Michael from Hacienda Misiones says that the Geisha variety prefers to grow high and preferably above 1500 masl. It is a plant that takes up a lot of space, but which gives a very small yield of berries per. plant. The rule of thumb is that you should expect to have approximately one third of the normal number of plants on the same area, and that each plant gives a yield of approx. one third of the number of berries. At the same time, the plant is very sensitive to fluctuations in weather and wind. The high demand, challenging growing challenges and low yield make Geisha one of the more expensive coffee varieties in specialty coffee.
