Ninety Plus Gesha Innovation Gift Box 5*50g
The meaning of innovation is to make changes in
something established, especially by introducing
new methods, ideas, or products. This has been at
the core of everything we do every day. Our
Founder and CEO, Joseph Brodksy, along with our
innovative processing team, are experimenting
with hundreds of different formulas each year,
pushing the boundaries of what coffee can taste
like, or how it should be cultivated. After many
trials and the past decade, we in errors
established formulas of growing and processing,
that enable us to produce better coffees every
year. They usually start as batches of 3kg, and
when they are perfected, they shape the whole
Ninety Plus' coffee portfolio.

accident in a processing experiment gone wrong

resulting batch called Perci Red scored 97 points

Joseph invited George to work with him to take this
process to a different level, and Ruby was born.
