Geisha Coffee

Coffee Flavours

Geisha coffee goes beyond being a beverage; it is a cultural phenomenon. The name “Geisha” itself evokes images of grace, tradition, and artistry. Explore the cultural roots and significance attached to Geisha coffee, from its Ethiopian beginnings to its prestigious status in Panama.

The Origins of Geisha Coffee

Geisha coffee, often referred to as Gesha, traces its origins back to the misty hills of Ethiopia. The story begins in the Gori Gesha forest, where the unique Geisha coffee variety was discovered. Its exceptional flavor profile and distinct characteristics sparked the interest of coffee growers, leading to its cultivation beyond the borders of Ethiopia.


The narrative of Geisha coffee takes an interesting turn as it finds a new home in the fertile soils of Panama. Renowned for its meticulous cultivation, the Geisha variety flourished in the Boquete region, reaching new heights of fame and recognition. The microclimates and elevation of Panama provided the ideal conditions for Geisha to express its full potential.

Flavour Profiles

🥁 Floral Aromas and Citrus Zest: Geisha coffee is celebrated for its complex and vibrant flavor profile. Tasting notes often include floral aromas reminiscent of jasmine and bergamot, accompanied by a burst of citrus zest.

🥁 Bright Acidity and Silky Body: One of the distinguishing features of Geisha coffee is its bright acidity, which adds a refreshing and lively character to each sip. Despite the pronounced acidity, Geisha maintains a silky and smooth body that adds to the overall luxuriousness of the coffee.
