10 years of

extraordinary coffee

The story of Gesha Village Coffee Estate is a captivating journey of Rachel Samuel and Adam Overton, a dynamic and adventurous couple, who made a life-changing decision to leave their successful careers in photography and documentary filmmaking in Los Angeles, driven by their deep love for coffee. Over a decade ago, they joined forces with renowned international coffee consultant Willem Boot, who had previously established Geisha coffee farms in Panama. Their shared vision was clear: to infuse every step of the coffee production process with their unique touch of artistry, love, and unwavering dedication.

The Land

The joint vision to establish Gesha Village Estate laid the foundation for the establishment of a breathtaking, 450-hectare Ethiopian coffee farm in the true birthplace of Gesha coffee designed to elevate coffee flavors to unparalleled heights. Through our relentless pursuit of meticulous levels of detail, we explored the Gesha region and build a farm situated on the Gesha plateau at an elevation of 1900 to 2000 meters.

The People

As we celebrate our 10-year anniversary, we want to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who has been part of our journey. From the beautiful Meanit people to the stunning land that nurtures our coffee, from our loyal customers to the incredible Gesha Village team, we are immensely thankful for the support and love we have received. Coffee farmers in Ethiopia and in coffee regions around the world have become inspired by our success story. Our impact extends beyond coffee. Through our community outreach efforts, we have made a tremendously positive impact, including the protection of our local forest and the construction of a high school in the area.
