The Geisha variety
The ‘Geisha’ or ‘Gesha’ variety of coffee has become one of the most consistent, high quality coffee cultivated over the last two decades. Geisha from Panama received global recognition when the Hacienda La Esmeralda farm entered a competition. It attracted markets from all over the world and has continued its prevalence within the industry since. This interest sparked other nations in South America to grow the variety, with El Salvador being the latest addition. Like all arabica, Geisha’s journey begins in Ethiopia. It just so happened that Costa Rica were cultivating Geisha before Panama. Continued efforts have brought Costa Rican Geisha to a very high standard and many similar flavours and traits are noticeable when comparing it to the Panamanian strain. This coffee has a wonderful, complex flavour of candy floss, honeysuckle and subtle bergamot. A certain head turner amongst our roasting house, this is one of the most exciting coffees we have had in a long time.
Batamba is named after the area of land that existed before the farm itself did. It also the exclusive region dedicated to growing Geisha. This is the first yield of its kind for this farm and has already been awarded an 88.5 cupping score which is considered very high.
