Ethiopia Gesha Oma Kola Natural Coffee

This coffee is only available as wholebeans.

“In a world of instancy, this expresses a celebration of the gentle mind, body and soul”

Ivica Cvetanovski
Founder, Coffea Circulor, Sweden

Roasted light based on conduction and moderate heat application with world class skill and care. Extensive roast, moderate inceptive heat that decreases and a ramp that leads into a very humble crack. We focus on enhancing the expression of florals and fruity acidity.

- Overview

Singular and exclusive: The Ethiopian Gesha is an exposé to a coffee connoisseur as a magic trick is to the mind.

Far to the west in Ethiopia, only kilometers from the South Sudanese border, are the dense and wild jungles of Bench Maji. A high plateau is the home of the luminous Gesha variety: Gesha Village. 

Near the border of South Sudan is the dense wild forests of the Bench Maji zone. This is the home of the luminous Gesha variety. High elevation, ample rainfall, fertile soil and temperate climates are crucial natural factors required to produce coffee of excellent quality.

This Gesha is a selection from the diverse forest population that closely resembles the Panamanian Geisha. This selection was made by looking at the plant morphology, bean shape and size, as well as its cup profile.

Cherries are picked, placed on raised African beds and sun-dried for 18 to 30 days with the whole coffee cherry intact in thin layers. A parabolic plastic cover is used during evenings for increased air-flow to prevent creation of mold. The cherries are thereafter tagged to indicate their origin and tracked to follow their way from the mill to export. 

With this relatively minimal lot we are looking at how we can apply our roasting algorithms at specific varieties. In the future, we see that some varieties might become more prominent which enables us to have an advantage in the sense of how to isolate specific varieties for optimal roasting.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe
