Gesha, sometimes referred to as Geisha, is a variety of coffee[1] believed to be originated in the Gesha village 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 entered a competition with a lot of Geisha that proved to be very unusual and distinct, attracting record prices.[1]
