Coffee Cupping – #3 The Gesha Village Estate
In the far western reaches of Ethiopia, mere kilometers from the South Sudanese border, lie the dense, wildly sprouting jungles of West Omo zone. It’s a place of stunning natural beauty, where from a high-extending plateau one can take in the expanse of the ancient, sprawling forest. This breathtaking landscape is home to Gesha Village Coffee Estate, the 471-hectare coffee farm built from the ground up over the last eleven+ years.
For months founders Rachel Samuel and Adam Overton searched for the perfect spot—one with high elevation, ample rainfall, temperate climates, and other crucial natural factors needed to produce coffee of excellent quality. They found it in West Omo. The untouched landscape provided us with the unique opportunity to build the coffee farm of our dreams from the ground up. But it also offered us a one-of-a-kind experience: close proximity to the Gori Gesha forest, the variety’s birthplace and site of the Panamanian Geisha discovery in the 1930s.

Willem Boot taught Rachel and Adam the fundamentals of growing and evaluating coffee with a quality focus, the shadow of Gesha loomed large.
On this day we will cup 2 sessions (2 x six coffees). We will taste gems produced by Rachel and Adam some of these were auction lots in 2022. Some of these coffees went for $250+/pound and some are new yet undiscovered lots from our friends from Gesha Village. Good news is that we do have some of the new green and roasted coffee lots for purchase at LaMulaCoffee.com
