Enigmatic, exclusive, unforgettable, phenomenal, "God in a cup". These have all been used to describe the elusive, sexy Geisha coffee variety, originally from the Gori Gesha Forest in Ethiopia and now grown in Kona.
Geisha coffee is a variety that originated in Ethiopia, renowned for the aromatic, complex, floral, and fruit-forward profile it produces. Because of the unusual flavor profile, rarity, production cost, an demand, Geisha coffees have become an aficionado's obsession. In 2019, a Panama Geisha coffee crushed the record for the highest price paid for coffee at auction, selling at $1029/lb green (unroasted), equating to $2522/lb roasted!
This award-winning Geisha coffee is grown in Kona and has earned Best Kona Coffee at the Kona Coffee Cultural Competition (2018), and Grand Champion at the Hawaii Coffee Association Cupping Competition (2018).
Beyond being hand-harvested and meticulously produced by the Stille family at their Monarch estate farm in Holualoa, it's also produced using sustainable farm practices and without harmful chemicals.
To cultivate Kona Geisha, the Stille family practices cover-cropping, composting, and interplanting to protect the ecosystem and attract butterflies, bees, and pollinators to their land.

Ordered the Kona Geisha. Excellent coffee with a smooth finish. Great for breakfast and dreaming of the Islands!
The best coffee I've purchased from Big Island Coffee Roasters. Seems to be roasted to show the origin character. These are bigger than other Gesha beans I've tried from Ethiopia or Panama. On a side note, do not purchase other coffees roasted medium light from here if you are looking for acidity and fruitiness akin to other specialty roasters, this is the only coffee that displays it.
I give this coffee very high mark! Smooth, not acidic at all, bro bitter, and doesn’t give a jittery effect. The name explains the quality of this coffee, Geisha!!! Amazing!!!
Kona Geisha is one of the top three estate coffees that I have had. Accentuated floral notes come through with a wonderful balance in acidity.
The Kona Geisha is unquestionably the best tasting coffee I have ever had. I will be signing up for monthly delivery after this coronavirus is over with.
Drink lots of coffee and am looking for a little more. 7 ounces does not last very long
