The Gesha Village Estate is a truly amazing and inspiring project from Adam Overton and Rachel Samuel, with one mission, to create the worlds best coffees. The coffee farm is located near the Gori Gesha forest in far western Ethiopia, near what is understood to be the origin of the famous Gesha lineage that has since traveled so far. In 2011 Adam and Rachel began developing a 500 hectare coffee farm in Gesha, Ethiopia. After an extensive and exhaustive search, the estate location was chosen based on the strict criteria of altitude (1900-2100 MASL), ample rainfall, temperature patterns, rich virgin forest soil, old growth trees, and an existing coffee ecosystem. A seed selection was harvested from the Gori Gesha wild coffee forest found 20 km from the farm, the site where the famous Panamanian Gesha was selected in the 1930s. The Oma plot is 67.6 Hectares in size with an altitude of 1931-2040 MASL . It is named after the respected and loved religious leader of the Meanit people.
