More info about this coffee

This coffee is harvested at precise ripeness by an experienced team of 15 long-time Finca San José coffee pickers who have worked with Arnold Paz for over 20 years. For this particular lot of Gesha, after the picking has been evaluated for ripeness, it is soaked in water for 24 hours to clean the cherries and limit the bacteria present during drying. The coffee is then dried on a clean patio for 8 hours before arriving into raised beds inside a domed greenhouse, where the coffee then slowly dries for 30 days. After this drying process is complete and the coffee reaches a humidity of 11%, it is all stored together in a large oak crate to rest and homogenize for another 30 days before being ready for export. 

This attention to detail produces a beautiful fruity coffee with elegant floral notes, berry flavors and a refreshing citric acidity. 2021 is the first year that Arnold exported this coffee. His young Gesha plantation just came in to full production and he has fine tuned the processing to produce a cup that lives up to the varietal’s reputation. We're so excited to share the fruits of his labor with you.
