About the Farm
Finca La Gabriela is at the heart of the Cafe Lumbus family, from whom we have sourced this beautiful Geisha coffee bean. La Gabriela has been in the family for 4 generations. Catalina owns the farm now, its 26ha were presented to her grandmother as a wedding present. They wanted to new couple to have an opportunity to grow food and provide for themselves through coffee.
This Geisha coffee comes from one plot on the farm dedicated to experimental varieties, where the trees are just 5 years old. The coffee is very carefully selected before it is taken to a wet mill, where it is cleaned, floated, and separated. It is then moved to the farm’s drying house, where 100 small beds hold the coffee as it dries slowly. They rotate it 5 times each day for as many as 20 days, weather depending, at temperatures of 35ºC.
