  • Black cherry, dried fruits, dark chocolate, creamy mouthfeel, heavy body.
  • The coffee from Gigesa shines at multiple roast levels! Keep it light for a lot of fruity notes in a pour-over and full immersion brewing or take to a medium roast to highlight the milk chocolate sweetness and heavy body. Tastes great in blends and even better as a single origin espresso!


The end result is a cup full of cherry notes, tropical fruit and milk chocolate with a wine-like peppery finish and syrupy body. Delicious! The Gigesa washing station is owned and operated by the Yonis family. As part of the quality control process, fresh cherries are floated in water to separate lower qualities before depulping. Traditional disc pulpers are used and the coffee is allowed at least 24 hours to ferment before being fully washed and set to dry on raised beds for 10-12 days on average.
