There’s something almost mystical about Gesha coffee. Ever since it was made famous by the Petersen family at Hacienda Esmeralda in Panama a decade ago, it has generated a considerable amount of hype and record-breaking prices through its intriguing and unique profile. At its best this coffee should taste like jasmine and lemon/lime citrus, often with additional notes of stone fruits, tropical fruits, and tea.
Several members of the Cantillo family in Suaza, Huila have managed to combine their harvests and collectively produce a shining example of this classic Gesha profile. The contributing producers are brothers Eugenio (pictured) and Isaías Cantillo, Jose Manuel (son of Isaías) and Edgar Garcia Ossa (cousin of Eugenio and Isaías).
This is our first year buying from the Cantillo Family. We purchased this lot through our importing partners and friends at Osito Coffee. We scored this lot an 88.75 and purchased 70kg for $10.00/lb, on a day when the Coffee Commodity price was $0.87/lb.
