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.

My Geisha

I’d roasted a central American geisha before, and although intrigued by the complex flavors, it wasn’t really my cup of tea. Too much like tea, actually. But I couldn’t resist trying Kona geisha, and thought it might be a way to amp up the Kona green typica I’ve been roasting. My new “home blend” is now about 85% Kona green with 15% Kona geisha and it’s just about ideal — the geisha adds brightness and a bit more complexity to the typica’s mellow cacao. I’m drinking it right now!

See those bubbles? When your coffee blooms with bubbles it’s a sign that it’s been recently roasted. The fresher the coffee, the more intensity you’ll get because great flavors and aromas fade over time.

☛ Our coffees are roasted-to-order each week, then packaged and shipped immediately, and arrive with the roast dates stamped on the bag.
