Acacia Hills, Gesha AB
Creamy apricot, grapefruit & tea rose.
Grown in some of Africa’s most famous landscapes, this Gesha varietal does the farm’s rich 50-year history justice. Perched on the slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater, both the farm and coffee of Acacia Hills stand beautiful and compelling. Nestled within our long-standing relationship with Acacia Hills Estate, Leon & Aideen have spent close to a decade perfecting their signature Gesha varietal. Each year, as these trees continue to mature, so do the flavours that present. Grown at the highest point on the farm, this year’s Gesha crop offers some classic floral aromatics, developing into creamy apricot and grapefruit flavours, lingering into a delicate tea rose finish.
