Peru Vanessa Neyra Geisha 2024
Peruvian Geisha Coffee by Vanesa Neyra
Vanesa Neyra’s coffee farm in Peru grows more than high-quality arabica coffee. It’s also home to native timber species like cedar, walnut, and laurel trees as part of her reforestation initiative.
In a secondary forest on her farm, Vanesa also maintains beekeeping practices to give local flora all the support it can get. She has her sights set on sustainable profitability, and plans to achieve this through participation in programs that ensure stable and regenerative coffee production.
As part of her third harvest, this rare and exceptional Peruvian geisha coffee is a testament to her newfound and well-deserved reputation for coffee that’s distinctively fruity and sweet, with an elegant fusion of floral aromas and spices.
Cajamarca is renowned for being a region where productivity is high per hectare. The sweet coffees with bright acidity that grow here come from lush highlands at soaring altitudes of 1500 to 2000masl.
What is Geisha green coffee?
Geisha coffee beans are a variety under the Arabica species of coffee. It’s also one of the most Arabica species of coffee in the world, valued for its incredibly distinct flavor profile that includes delicate floral notes and tea-like character. The trees are naturally low-yielding and can be difficult to cultivate due to their sensitivity, adding to the rarity of geisha coffee beans available on the market.
Gesha coffee, as it was originally known, was collected from the Gesha region in Ethiopia and brought to Central America in 1953 as T2722, the variety we know as Panamanian Geisha today. Since experiencing exceptional success at the “Best of Panama” auction and gaining acclaim over the decades, gesha/geisha coffee beans are now being cultivated in many origins around the world.
This washed geisha from Peru features a delectable flavor bouquet of green grape, honey, peach, apricot, and lemongrass.
Peru Green Coffee Beans
Peru is the world’s 5th largest producer of Arabica coffee and it is gaining in popularity. The thin air, soaring altitudes, and fertile soil throughout Peru come together to form a breathtaking environment where coffee thrives. But sharing a border with the largest coffee-producing nation in the world is not easy. While Brazil’s efficiency and price points are unmatched, Peru finds its footing in differentiation and variety, making every harvest something to look forward to.
