Wow! We've rarely seen a small lot fly off the shelves like this one. When our friends at Roseline Coffee told us they were bringing in a special, super-limited lot of anaerobic fermentation Gesha from one of Colombia's top growers, we jumped at the chance to reserve a small amount for Bean Box customers. And we're glad we did—within less than a week, Roseline sold every bean of this amazing coffee, and we feel so lucky to be able to offer you one of the very last bags of Colombia Raquel Lasso Gesha.
This coffee comes from Raquel Lasso and her farm, La Bohemia, located 1800-2000 meters above sea level in the coffee-growing mecca of Narino, Colombia. There are almost too many good things to say about Raquel to fit in a single summary, but here goes. She has only a small lot of ~6,000 Gesha trees, cultivated from seeds originating in Panama (where the Latin American Gesha varietal was first discovered). Her farm is an example of what she calls "agroforestry", interspersing coffee plants among others like avocado, lemon, banana, and yucca, that feed themselves and local families. Raquel Lasso is also known for her tremendous outreach and service to the community. She founded FUDAM, an organization that works with small coffee producers to improve coffee quality, promote environmentally-sustainable growing methods, help farmers negotiate fair prices for their beans. She's also spearheaded an initiative that provides support for female growers to achieve economic equity and independence. Kudos to Roseline for sourcing such an amazing coffee, from a true leader and innovator in coffee, sustainability, and social responsibility.
With rich, round notes of papaya, pineapple, and banana, a luxuriously creamy mouthfeel, and an unusually spicy finish, this exclusive lot is a unicorn of Colombian coffee. We have less than 100 bags of this stunner, and it's bound to sell out fast— so don't wait! Reserve a bag of Roseline's sold out Colombia Raquel Lasso Gesha, and wrap yourself, or someone you love, in the “cashmere of coffee”: a sweet, tropical vacation for your morning.
Available while supplies last, as 8oz bags, whole bean and freshly ground.
