Colombia Wilton Benitez Geisha - Special Release

Regular price $26.00

Special Release - This coffee will be roasted on the week of the 1st and 15th each month while quantities last.

Another incredible coffee from Wilton Benitez at Granja Paraiso 92 in Piendamó, Cauca.  Paraíso 92 is a highly innovative farm with its own processing plant, microbiology lab, and quality lab. This particular coffee is a washed Geisha variety that has undergone a double anaerobic thermal shock process.  The first anaerobic fermentation phase involves adding specific microorganisms under carefully controlled conditions. Afterwards, the coffee is pulped and then subjected to a second fermentation phase. When the second fermentation phase is complete, a thermal shock process is carried out through hot and cold-water shots in an effort to improve and boost the organoleptic characteristics of the coffee. 

When we drink this coffee we think of...
gardenia, lychee, guava, jolly ranchers

Origin: Piendamó, Cauca, Colombia
Variety: Geisha
Elevation: 1,900 masl
Process: Double anaerobic thermal shock

Social Coffee was an idea that was born from Beyond Bread, a small artisanal bakery located in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood on West 4th avenue.  At Beyond Bread, the loaves and pastries are meticulously prepared using carefully selected, high quality ingredients with a focus on producers with a commitment to sustainable agriculture and biodiversity.
The idea behind Social Coffee was to create coffees that matched Beyond Bread’s standards for high quality sustainable products.  These values are represented in Social Coffee’s line-up with organic coffees used for both our Final Proof Espresso Blend and Swiss Water Decaf Cascadia Blend, and traceable single origin coffees used for all of our filter coffees.
By purchasing high quality, traceable specialty grade coffee, we support transparency and are able to provide recognition to our producers.  By focusing on coffees that are produced using sustainable methods, we can ensure that specialty coffee can continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.
At Social Coffee, all of our coffees are carefully selected, prepared in small batches, and packaged by hand.  We love what we do and our goal is to make every cup our best.


Social Coffee

Social Coffee is about community. Our social and environmental values are reflected in the products and relationships we create. Our coffee is thoughtfully sourced, handcrafted, and roasted in small batches. We love what we do and our goal is to make every cup our best.


Hand roasting is the art of curating and blending beans to create the most perfect flavor for each variety of coffee. It's about telling a story.

Small Batch

Our coffee beans are freshly roasted in small batches every Friday and shipped the day after, which means they are never roasted more than 7 days before despatch.


We use coffee beans sourced from farmers who uphold sustainable practices and are ensured a fair price. Big change can be made one coffee at a time.
