In 2007, Rigoberto Herrera and Luis Eduardo Herrera began researching the Gesha varietal that is grown in Panama. Having developed a fascination with exotic coffee varietals, they decided to bring these plants to Colombia and shortly thereafter the Colombian Geisha Buenos Aires was being produced on their farm, Finca Potosi, in the town of Caicedonia.
The cherry collectors are usually trained for several months to learn how to pick only the ripest cherries. The results of this hard work, research, and innovation have produced a wonderful lot of co ee. Rigoberto and Luis have clearly achieved their goals of establishing a distinctive brand for their farm and delivering a coffee with an exceptional flavor profile.
