- Guatemala Geisha Coffee History and Processing: Guatemala Geisha is a very unique type of coffee with several distinguishing properties that make it special. The term Geisha comes from the Ethiopian town of Gesha, where the coffee plant originated. Geisha Coffee is different in appearance, is naturally resistant to some diseases and the beans are long and slender. The crop yield of this type of Coffee plant is meager, which is why it is so difficult to find commercial plantations and production of this coffee. There are different varieties of Geisha Coffee since they are the plant seedlings from the original plant in Ethiopia that have been exported. Geisha Coffee varieties can be found in Ethiopia, Tanzania, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, and Peru. While there are many factors that influence how plants grow and how the fruit that they bear may develop, the local coffee plantations give each crop a unique characteristic and flavor.
