Gesha, sometimes referred to as Geisha, is a variety of coffee believed to be originated in Ethiopia. It is considered to produce a very aromatic and floral cup of coffee and the demand for it has grown in recent years.
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. The latest accomplishment by Panama Geisha coffee occurred at the Best of Panama auction in 2018, where a lot of Geisha coffee, produced by "Lamastus Family Estates," 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 to $110 a cup; making it the most expensive coffee in the world. These countries include, the United States, Japan, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Australia, and many more.
