Gera is known for cooler, wetter weather. The highland climate is shadier and receives 8 months of rainfall, resulting in well-irrigated coffee that is bursting with flavor. The coffee trees here grow under a natural forest, allowing the beans to develop more slowly and take on fuller flavors. This coffee is hand-picked by small farmers, then pulped, washed, and laid out to dry. After drying, the washed beans are then carefully sorted to remove any defects, allowing the natural flavors of heirloom coffee varieties to carry through into the cup.
