In the far western reaches of Ethiopia lie the dense, wildly sprouting jungles of Bench-Maji. This breathtaking landscape is home to Gesha Village Coffee Estate, a roughly 471-hectare coffee farm. Since 2011, they have been transforming this remote piece of land into the coffee farm of their dreams, cultivating some of the world’s best Gesha coffees mere kilometers from the variety’s birthplace in Ethiopia’s Gori Gesha forest. After years of hard work, they’re producing coffees as awe-inspiring as their surroundings.
Gesha Village planted coffee trees, relying not just on Gori Gesha but several other local varieties. They forged relationships with the indigenous Meanit people, ensuring both a mutual understanding of respecting the land as well as a local workforce.
Gesha Village’s goal is to be the finest, environmentally conscious coffee farm in Ethiopia, with uncompromising commitment to quality in every step of cultivation and processing, with the ultimate dedication to their employees and to their customers.
The Bench Maji comes from a literal stone’s throw away from the birthplace of the most revered and sought after variety in coffee, and it just tastes right. I don’t know how we lucked into this coffee but we did and we’re stoked. Totally accessible price on a coffee that rivals the best and most expensive coffees on the planet. Get this Gesha. Get on Gesha Village’s level.
