The Ninety Plus Gesha Estates were designed with inspiration drawn from coffee growing wild in its natural habitat in Ethiopia. The Gesha variety, along with all heirloom coffee varieties, comes from the understory of wild forests in Ethiopia. These heirloom varieties of coffee live very long lives – up to 100 years or more – and produce relatively small amounts of intensely aromatic coffee. With its first significant production in 2014, coffee from Ninety Plus Gesha Estates was used to win the first of 5 World Brewers Cup Championships in 6 years year to date (2020). Ninety Plus Gesha Estates proves that coffee can be utilized to reforest and sustain tropical lands while producing the highest valued coffees in the world.
In 2005, Ninety Plus Founder, Joseph Brodsky, traveled to Ethiopia for the first time and decided to make it home for the coming years, having fallen in love with the people, the food, the language, the culture, and the semi-forested coffee lands in Ethiopia’s southwest.
Tigre is the second of two completely new taste profiles discovered in 2020 by Ninety Plus. Tigre has a taste profile that resembles buttered rum cake or cognac, laden with chocolate and cherry. A distinctive experience. Tigre is named in honor of Camilo Sanchez, Director of Estates at Ninety Plus, who manifests the strength and perseverance of a tiger in his daily work. “El Tigre” is also known for his adventures with Joseph Brodsky in the magical coffee wilderness at Ninety Plus Estates.
