This coffee is produced on Israel's private Gelana farm, Yirgacheffe region. The Gelana Dry Mill is very labour intensive with 500 raised beds, 48 permanent staff and ~ 500 members of temporary staff during the harvest season.

The Gelana coffee farm covers 1.5 hectares of coffee cultivation with much of the farm running under greenhouse conditions. In this greenhouse, every agronomic practice is computer controlled using smart techniques. The farm acts as a starting point for many of Israel’s new variety experiments and helps to improve uniform growth for coffee seedlings.

Initially established to cultivate the Gesha variety, the farm has also been used more recently to explore traditional Brazil varieties. This year, Kamba have imported three different coffees that started their life at Gelana – Red Catuai / Topazio / Gesha. As well as offering new cup profiles, the work at Gesha farm is monitored by teams of agronomists to help contribute to variety research in the face of climate change.
