Meet the guys who grow that silky sweet floral-bomb coffee we recently released: Kona Geisha of Monarch Farms → Greg & Sal!
Geisha coffee is a variety that originated in Ethiopia, renowned for the aromatic, complex, floral and fruit forward profile it produces. Due to rarity and demand, Geisha coffees can reach up to $600 per lb, and retail in cafes for $9-$18/ cup.
To cultivate this rare Kona Geisha the family practices cover-cropping, composting, and interplanting to protect the ecosystem and attract butterflies, bees and pollinators to their land.
Their commitment to maintaining healthy soil and perfect harvesting has paid off in the form of their numerous awards, like earning Grand Champion in the 2018 Hawaii Coffee Association Cupping Competition, and 1st place in the Kona Coffee Cultural Festival.
