Carbon negative coffee



Present day Gera is a district in Western Ethiopia whose borders roughly match those of an old kingdom of the same name, which existed here almost 200 years ago. One of the five ancient Oromo kingdoms of the Gibe area, Gera was renowned for its exquisite honey. The golden liquid is still an important product of the area, but today, so is coffee. The Gera district is a high-altitude location, with the farm sitting somewhere between 1,860 and 1,990 metres above sea level. Over half of the land is old, untouched forest. This combination makes for a location that is well-suited to coffee trees. In fact, there are many that grow naturally here.

Gesha is known for its exceptional cup quality, especially when grown at high altitudes. This variety comes from Ethiopian landrace coffees and was collected from Ethiopian coffee forests in the 1930s. The name supposedly derives from Ethiopia’s Gori Gesha forest. There is some confusion with several genetically distinct varieties that have all been called Gesha, but the most famous variety is the Panamanian one.

We don’t label our coffee as espresso or filter. Instead, for each coffee we create a unique roasting profile, designed to bring out the best flavours from its origin, farm and milling method. That’s why, instead, we label our coffee based on the experience it brings to the cup.
