History: This exotic and extravagant seed came directly from Malawi in the hands of a great friend of ours. The seed came in ashes as natives from Malawi use this method to preserve the seed for more time. This is smaller bean than traditional Gesha and the color when it rippens its like glow in the dark red, that is why the name Ruby Gesha.

Grown in Los Pinos our highest altitude region right next to the Legendary Gesha.

Process: Peak: Performance Process (P3). We call this to our exahustive process of hand sorting, separation and selection of the coffee beans through out the washed and dry mill.

Also cold extended fermentation, soaking for 24hrs after washing ans very slow drying. This enhances the flavors and increases the life time of the coffee!
