San Francisco! Tomorrow, August 2nd is a good day to drink coffee, as Equator Coffees & Teas will be hosting Adam Overton—co-owner of the Gesha Village Coffee Estate in Ethiopia—who will be bringing along with him a previewing one of the lots from their first-ever crop.
Taking place at 6:00pm at Equator’s downtown San Francisco cafe, The Gesha Village Preview is a chance for Bay Area residents to get to meet Overton, who will be discussing his 500-hectare farm as well as how the Gesha Village Coffee Estate acquired the seedstock from the Gori Gesha wild coffee forest just 20 kilometers away. Following the presentation, Overton will be available for a Q&A session with all attendees.
After the talk, guests will be able to be some of the first individuals to try Gesha Village’s Oma coffee, roasted by Equator. This is part of just their first harvest, some of which already sold at auction for over $100 a pound, but attendees will get to try it for free. For those unable to attend, all Equator cafes will be serving the Gesha Village Oma the following Monday, but for a cool $8 a cup.
The event is free to attend with no RSVP required. For more information, visit the Gesha Village Preview Facebook event page.
