About the Producer
Villa Alejandra is a 7-hectare farm with 6 hectares of coffee planted in the clay loam and volcanic soil. The farm is owned by Victor Eliecer Garzón, who harvests his Gesha cherries when they are bright red, about every 20 days during the season. The coffee is depulped the same day it’s harvested, and then the seeds are fermented for 24 hours dry. The coffee is washed three times and dried in a combination of casa elbadryers and in parabolic dryers for 10 days.
The aromatic qualities that make gesha coffee unique don’t start to express themselves until the plants start being grown at 1,400 meters above sea level or more.
