The San Alberto Geisha project started in the first half of 2013. The Hacienda’s manager and Juan Pablo wanted to have more genetic diversity on the farm, so they met with Cenicafé, Colombia’s coffee research center, to start a test project. Hacienda San Alberto has a small plot dedicated to varietal experiments, to test how seeds and plants from other varieties behave in their own specific terroir. Next to Geisha, they have 12 more varieties under study. The result to an initial series of tests was positive. The first lot of Geisha at Hacienda San Alberto was planted soon after, in August. The identity of the lot was kept secret from the farm workers and visitors by referring to the experiment as “Code Z”.
