Colombia El Obraje Geisha

  • $21.99

LAST CALL! We're roasting the last batch on April 20 and supplies are limited! Famed for its complex and unique cup profile, the Geisha varietal has found its way to the top of many cupping tables and we're thrilled to offer this one from El Obraje. Owned by Pablo Guerrero, this farm is located in the Narino department of Colombia and was originally an apple orchard. Pablo saw an opportunity to grow coffee when the regional crops of wheat and bean began to falter. In fact, he was the first to introduce coffee to the area. The high altitude of Tangua Township, which is located just outside the city of Pasto, made coffee farming a risky bet. It paid off when Pablo soon discovered that coffee flourished in the area. Tasting notes of this Geisha varietal include orange julius, salted caramel and jasmine. Whole bean, only.

Coffee Info

The packaging of this special coffee is inspired by the art technique, Barniz de Pasto, which is a specialty of the region. This technique uses a type of natural rubber (extracted from a tree called mopa-mopa) which is colored and then stretched over woodwork pieces; finally, the skillful artisan uses a special knife to cut and create the design.
