Juan Cubillos Gesha

A perfect introduction if you’ve never enjoyed the wonders of Gesha before, and a fascinating example of the varietal for those who have enjoyed previous offerings from the genre.

The Gigante municipality lies in the central-east area of the department of Huila, in Colombia’s Andean region. Rich in forests, rivers and streams it is situated on the left bank of the Magdalena River between western mountain ranges and Matambo hill, with an economy based predominantly on the agriculture of coffee and cocoa.

With a name said to come from the magical stories of giants in the area who watch over the land, it is a region of stunning natural beauty within which Finca La Florida sits close to the Eastern Huila border.

Proudly owned and operated by Juan Cubillos, the farm totals 16 hectares with much of the farm planted with Variedad Colombia, but in more recent years Juan has overseen the planting of a wider selection of more chase varietals and cultivar. 9,000 Pink Bourbon trees and 500 SL-28 trees now grace the farm alongside 2000 Gesha plants from which this lot was selected.

With high altitudes and impeccable soil quality, Colombia’s Gesha offerings continue to display wonderfully-high cup quality every season, with this washed lot an intriguing example of the varietal. The cup is full of distinctive character, reminding us in-part of some of the very highest quality Yirgacheffe Ethiopian lots, with bergamot florality on the nose and subtle tea-like notes in the cup. Longer, more gentle roast profiles allow the incredible quality of the ingredients to shine, with full-immersion brewing highlighting the silky body and pour-overs letting the stunning florality take centre-stage.

          

Store in a cool, dry place.

In nitrogen-flushed, valveless bags, oxygen content is reduced to under 3%, preserving optimal quality for up to 9 months.

Once open we recommend using within 7 days.

These coffees are shipped within 4 weeks of roasting and packing.

Free UK shipping for all orders £35 and over. Shipping costs calculated at checkout - tracked options available.
