Variety T2722

Geisha Variety

Variety T2722 a.k.a. Geisha 

It is known as Gesha or Geisha, named after the mountain in Ethiopia where the seeds are collected.

 

First, this variety was collected in the deep forest of Ethiopia in the 1930s. From there it was sent to the Lyamungu research station in Tanzania, and then brought to another agricultural research center in Costa Rica in 1953.

 

It was logged as T2722, the Ethiopian Landrace variety that has tolerance to coffee leaf lust.

 

It was distributed throughout Panama in the 1960s, but it wasn't favored by farmers as the plant's branches were brittle and cup quality wasn't exceptional neither.

 

The coffee came under the spotlight in 2005 when the Peterson family of Boquete, Panama, entered it into the "Best of Panama" coffee competition. It received exceptionally high marks and bloke the record for green coffee auction price, selling for over $20/pound.

 

This variety shows extremely high cup quality when the plants are managed well at high altitude.

 

Well known flavor characteristics are delicate floral, jasmine and peach-like aromas.
