Another amazing Coffee from Israel Degfa, you may have noticed we have a Natural Gesha Ethiopian from this producer so we thought it would be fitting to place another one along side. This Red Catuai from the Yirgacheffe region really shines out of the crowd with its bright and delicate nuances. These coffees are also available as a pack if you would like to experience 2 coffees from the same farm & producer but with different varieties.
The Gelana coffee farm covers 1.5 hectares of coffee cultivation with much of the farm running under greenhouse conditions. In this greenhouse, every agronomic practice is computer controlled using smart techniques. The farm acts as a starting point for many of Israel’s new variety experiments and helps to improve uniform growth for coffee seedlings. Initially established to cultivate the Gesha variety, the farm has also been used more recently to explore traditional Brazil varieties.
This year we have imported 2 Coffees that started their life at Gelana – Red Catuai & Gesha. As well as offering new cup profiles, the work at Gesha farm is monitored by teams of agronomists to help contribute to variety research in the face of climate change.
