Tasting Notes


Light body, super dynamic profile, super prominent floral notes: this coffee displays the potential of a gesha almost perfectly. The body of this coffee is so light, drinking a hot cup is almost refreshing and the smell is so floral, it’s as if you’re drinking a bouquet of roses. A very subtle fruitiness sits comfortably on top of the dynamic floral profile with notes of peeled grapes (absolutely zero bitterness). This gesha is quiet, but speaks volumes in its subtlety. 


El Vergel Coffee Production


Elias & Shady Bayter's farm is located in the beautiful Departamente of Tolima spanning across the mountains in Colombia. Colombia boasts 11 different altitudes, each containing a unique flavor palate, that is unrivaled anywhere else in the world.

The farm rests on El Vergel, or Black Mountain, an inactive volcano that has created some of the most nutrient-rich soil for planting.

Each and every green coffee bean is single-origin, hand-picked, and carefully inspected by one of the tenured pickers. They go through great lengths to only produce the finest yields from our crops for coffee roasters around the world.

This Gesha was processed with a +95% of optimum mature cherry, and it was developed with an extended anaerobic fermentation for 52 hours, followed by a slow intermittent drying in the sun.  This Gesha is one of the most demanding coffees to be produced at EL VERGEL, located at the highest part of the estate, this varietal was planted based on the soil and climate conditions specifically to promote an extended growth of the cherries to promote higher brix content. ​Planted in 2016 with a quantity of 12.300 plants, this micro-lot has been managed to find specific genetic branches of the Gesha to develop specific processed based on these genetic branches, for this coffee, was used a mix of 4 genetic branches, which gives more complexity to the profile, and by a CM fermentation its obtain a very unique type of Gesha, with the characteristics of the variety and also a whole new face of Gesha possibilities.

Since our inception, fast free shipping has been one of our tenants as a company.  So it took a long time for me to come to a decision to eliminate the free portion of that sentence.  I know we all want free, so taking that away is putting a lot of trust in you guys to be able to understand my reasoning and trust my math.  I'm going to list a few reasons I moved away from the free shipping model all-together below.  I'd love to hear from you if you think this is a bad decision or if you appreciate me putting the shipping cost decisions in your hands.

 

Free is Never Really Free

Full disclosure, free shipping isn't really free shipping.  I am paying to ship you your coffee, so you're either paying for it buried in the price of the coffee beans or at the end at checkout.  I think the psychology of free shipping is that you don't end up at the checkout and find out that you need to spend another 30% to get your items.  That's a very real thing and I hope to have a simple pricing model to help you avoid that sticker shock.  Before I get there, let me tell you what I used to do.  It used to cost me about $9.00 to ship 5lbs of coffee (USPS just raised their prices...again).  So what I did was add $1.80 to each pound as I calculated the selling price.  I then had $5 shipping for under $35 orders to try to drive the customer (you) to buy about 5lbs of coffee and make the math work.

There have been several flaws with this model.  First off, it made the cost per lb look like we're WAY more expensive than other green coffee resellers in the market.  Second, it really stops working when someone orders less than 5lbs and more than 5lbs, because the cost to ship 5lbs-30lbs per pound is much less than $1.80/lb.  So it kind of narrowed our market.  Third, we have recently been able to negotiate even better rates with FedEx and blown up the $1.80/lb model.  We can now do a 2-day Padded Pak at an amazing rate and fit 10lbs in it.  The irony of a free shipping model is that it is less transparent.  If I'm going to be completely transparent with my cost model, then you'll recognize a good deal when you see it and we're all happier.  Transparency makes the whole sales process work better.

So we now include our pricing without shipping and add it on at the end.  To help you optimize your buying experience our shipping pricing is listed below.
