In 1931, the British Ambassador of Ethiopia collected seeds near the village of Gesha to use for research purposes. From there, the coffee seeds journeyed to Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and finally to Panama – where it received a lot of attention from specialty coffee aficionados around the world. Recently, Gesha 1931 found its way home to the forests of southwest Ethiopia. Gesha Village is one of the farms where Gesha 1931 grows.
