Panama Geisha coffee beans (a.k.a. Gesha coffee) are consistently ranked among the most expensive in the world. Irrespective of where you find it and the quantity you buy, geisha coffee is expensive…period.
Hence, whether you are the lucky recipient of one of our electronic gift cards or you’re spending your own money, you will probably have the same question on your mind:
Does Geisha coffee really live up to the hype?
More importantly - are Panama Geisha coffee beans worth paying such a high price for?
The short answer in both instances is the same - a resounding yes. Let’s take a look at what makes Geisha coffee in all its forms such a desirable product that justifies every penny.
Panama Geisha Coffee: The Basics
The truth is, there are plenty of gourmet coffees on the market today that aren’t particularly easy to distinguish from one another. If you were to try a selection of them side by side, you would have to be a pretty seasoned veteran to know which was which.
Not that this is necessarily a bad thing - they could all be absolutely fantastic coffees in their own right.
However, grind a batch of Panama Geisha coffee beans and you instantly know you are in for something special. Take a sip of a freshly brewed cup and you will know your electronic gift card went on a good cause!
The complexity of genuine Panama geisha coffee beans is simply off the scale. Even if you are not particularly experienced with gourmet coffees, it is hard not to be blown away by the whole thing.
Like a fine wine, Gesha coffee is a treat to be savored and enjoyed slowly, when the time comes to indulge. For that reason alone, it represents surprisingly good value for money - irrespective of the per-kg purchase price.
Expensive vs. Expensive
It is also worth bearing in mind that while premium Gesha coffee may cost more than most commercial coffee coffees, it is actually quite cheap when considered in context.
For example, there was a super limited batch of Panama Geisha coffee beans produced a while back which sold for $600 per lb. The vast majority of what was available was snapped up instantaneously.
In addition, Panama geisha coffee is rarer, more expensive and more exclusive in Asia than in most other places. In fact, you can expect to pay $85 or so for a single cup of Geisha coffee in a premium establishment in the east.
Which, when you think about it, means what is on the market in the UK isn’t really too expensive at all!
