LIMITED RELEASE (4oz bag)
Plain and simply, this is not only the best coffee we’ve roasted at De Fer, but one of the best coffees we’ve ever drank, anywhere, period. This coffee comes directly to us from the grower (Ninety Plus Gesha Estates)–whose coffee has won World Brewers Cup Championships five times since they began producing coffee in 2014.
This exceptional lot takes the wild flavors that Gesha is renowed for to the max. The flavor this coffee delivers is hard to put into words–we taste wild honey, luxardo cherry and spiced rum. We also think of the complexity and sweetness of Port. Like most great foods and drinks though–tasting is believing.
We’ve waited nearly 4 years to release this kind of coffee–Roasting a Gesha of this quality is not a task we took lightly. This coffee is special, and it’s expensive. At $28 for a 4oz bag, it’s the most expensive coffee we’ve ever purchased–but it still works out to less than $5 a cup, which is a fraction of what you’d pay for equivalent-quality beer, wine or even tea.
If you give this as a gift, do yourself a favor and try it too. This type of coffee doesn’t come around often, but we know you’ll enjoy it if you try it.
Please note this coffee comes in a 4 oz bag.

We roast all week and ship/deliver orders each Friday. Thank you!!
NOTE: If you choose “French Press” grind, expect it to be finer than usual. French Presses are great, but because of science, they’re not hugely efficient at extracting ALL the goodness the coffee has to offer. We fix this by grinding it medium, instead of course like conventional wisdom says. The price is that a few more of the ultra fine coffee particles make it through the screen and create a flavorful, albeit slightly opaque cup. In other words, we choose flavor over aesthetics. If you want to keep your cup looking cleaner, choose a pour over grind.
Honey, Luxardo Cherry, Spiced Rum, Port
MORE ABOUT THIS COFFEE
Ninety Plus Gesha Estates legend began in 2009 when Joseph Brodsky purchased an old cattle farm on the slopes of the Barú volcano in Panama, with a vision to reforesting it with indigenous trees, and using the understory to grow Ethiopian Gesha varietal coffee trees--as a close analogue to how the trees would have originally been found growing in Ethiopia's wild forests.
Joseph's idea was bigger than growing great coffee--he sought to challenge and innovate the value chain in the coffee industry, matching coffee grown in the best conditions in the world with technology to develop natural processes that provide unique flavor profiles and result in some of the worlds finest coffees. Today, Ninety Plus Gesha Estates is a marvel of ecological progress, and is a shining example of how (when consumers are willing to pay for it), nature and agriculture can exist, and thrive in a mutually beneficial way.
