Quality Report - Colombia Jardines Del Eden Yellow Geisha Natural EF2

About This Coffee

This coffee was grown by Felipe Arcila at the farm Jardines Del Eden. It was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours before being placed inside Grainpro bags for 50 hours at a temperature below 22oC. The whole cherries were then placed on raised beds until 11% moisture content was achieved.

This microlot is 100% Yellow Gesha. Gesha is originally from Ethiopia and cherries usually ripen to be red. Out of 1000 Gesha trees we occasionally come across trees producing yellow cherries, these are the Yellow Gesha. This variety performs well grown at an altitude of 1850 MASL. Cofinet was lucky enough to obtain Yellow Gesha seeds from the award winning farm La Negrita owned by Mauricio Shattah back in 2018.
