Jorge Vasquez Geisha

Jorge Vasquez Geisha

Regular price $28.00

A natural Costa Rican geisha with mouthwatering acidity and red fruit sweetness.


We wanted to give you a few Geishas to try with the latest arrival of Costa Ricans so here is a delicious naturally processed lot roasted by our friends at Prolog out of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Jorge Vasquez bought Finca El Cedral in 2007 from Don Fernando Monge, who had inherited it from his father Don Adan Monge. The Monge family owned the farm for 50 years, and before that the property belonged to the Rojas family, a major coffee producing entity in the area during the twentieth century. 

On the farm there is a micromill named Roble Negro that partners with local coffee growers to produce quality, traceable lots and to help facilitate access to international markets. The mill was founded in 2019, initially only fitted with drying beds and patios. The team made several important investments in the mill in 2020, growing the infrastructure to be able to process Natural, Honey, and Washed coffees.

Roble Negro first processed their own coffee at their on-site wet mill during the 2020 harvest, and the processing follows the rest of their commitment to protecting their environment. The farm uses Honey, Natural, and careful Washed processing to avoid water contamination. Coffee cherry skins are reincorporated back into the soil as part of their natural fertilization, and the coffee is sun-dried both for quality as well as to make use of the natural energy source.

Jorge’s Roble Negro micromill is well-known for its high quality standards and thoughtful sustainability practices.

This natural Geisha lot is full of juicy raspberry notes and deep red wine-like sweetness. Like all geishas it will be floral, fruity and fun to share with friends.
