Gesha Village has always had a special place with us here at Black & White Coffee. The Gesha Village is a project with a clear and distinct vision to produce the most amazing coffees possible, and have been wildly popular in the competition circuit. It started as a coffee documentary project from Rachel Samuel and Adam Overton, who after gaining permission from the local Meanit Shasha Woreda people to plant wild seeds harvested from the Gori Gesha Forest.
The farm is home to more than 30,000 native shade trees and 700,000 coffee trees with half descended from the Gori Gesha forest seeds. The lot we were able to obtain through last year from our friends at Genuine Origin was the highest scoring coffee we have brought into the Black and White Coffee family. We are excited to offer this amazingly clean and complex natural processed coffee, that we were able to work directly with Adam at Gesha Village to buy direct with help from Trabocca.
Kyle and Adam have cultivated a friendship of sharing information and chatting about the possibilities of the speciality coffee market. Both of them share an amazing love for Ethiopian coffee along with the Gesha Variety that they both love so very much. All of this adds to the beautiful complex and juicy cup with notes of tropical fruit, delicate florals and intense berries and an even syrupy sweetness throughout.
Worka Chelbessa is a name that brings a ton of people back to "that coffee;" you know, the one that changed their coffee lives. This coffee is a touch different than the naturals of old. Instead of only having that big red/purple fruit it also has vibrant florals to add in some lovely high notes and complexity.
The kebele (community) of Worka Chelbessa is the largest coffee growing area in the district of Gedeb. This year, a company called SNAP, founded by Nugusse Debela, took over management of this site in Worka Chelbessa.
Negusse Debela has not been in the coffee industry long. In fact he is known in Ethiopia as a computer guy. On a recent trip to Minnesota, Negusse ordered a pour-over that changed his whole mindset about the potential of Ethiopian Coffee. On his return home, Negusse began on a mission for SNAP to be the best quality exporters in Ethiopia. Since then, Negusse hired Abenezer Asafaw, an energetic and young coffee professional as his wuality and coffee manager. SNAP has also bought land to procee coffee themselves but also have started managing processing sites all over.
