Tiny Arms is so excited to be offering our first Gesha! Since freshness is so important to our tiny team (and these beans are pretty special) we put them right in the archival freezer once roasted to keep these AFAP (as fresh as possible). As if these beans weren't already special these come in a  reusable limited edition Tiny Arms tin featuring a one way valve so all your future beans can stay fresh in style.
