Gesha, sometimes referred to as Geisha, is a variety of coffee[1] believed to be originated in Ethiopia.[2] It is considered to produce a very aromatic and floral cup of coffee and the demand for it has grown in recent years.[1]

It was imported from Costa Rica to Panama in the Boquete region. It gained prominence and popularity in 2004, when Hacienda La Esmeralda[3] entered a competition with a lot of Geisha that proved to be very unusual and distinct, attracting record prices.[1] The latest accomplishment by Panama Geisha coffee occurred at the Best of Panama auction in 2018,[4] where a lot of Geisha coffee, produced by "Lamastus Family Estates,"[5] sold for $803/per pound. Referred to later as "Elida Natural Geisha 803," it has been sold in different coffee shops all around the world for prices ranging from $75[6] to $110 a cup; making it the most expensive coffee in the world.[7] These countries include, the United States, Japan, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Australia, and many more.
