Recommended Roast Level
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.

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.
