Colombia — Gesha
Our pick for the Dutch Barista Championsips Finals


This coffee’s story begins with Duberney, a young man who aimed to improve his family’s coffee business on the farm and made a grueling 6-hour off-road trip every Friday for 5 years to obtain his degree in Forest and Agronomic Sciences. By 2018, his hard work and science-based approach paid off with 2nd place in the Cup of Excellence. Despite limited guidance, Duberney has become one of Colombia’s top producers with meticulous techniques.

The difference between the washed and double washed process lies in the way coffee is fermented after de-pulping. In traditional washed, coffee is soaked in tanks with water for, let’s say, 24 hours before drying, whereas in double washed, the coffee is first left to ferment without water for 24 hours after pulping, then soaked in water for 30 minutes, drained and left to ferment again for 24 hours. This fermentation process is mostly dry, but the coffee is double washed.

This taste you will find is the perfect combination in between the pure Gesha genentics and the mastermind of a high end process by Duberney.


His approach resulted in incredible floral notes in this coffee and flavours of a true spectrum of citric fruits, from Fanta to lemon sorbet. A clean cup, that has an silky mouthfeel and medium weight.
Preferred brewing method: espresso
