It is a bean that supposedly originated in Ethiopia and is now grown in Central America. It commands high prices.

Oh no way, man. Starbucks would never carry such a high-quality (and expensive) coffee. And if they did, their roasting process would mangle the taste. No, geisha is something that even most gourmet coffee shops don't carry - partly because it's so expensive and partly because it's a low-yield. There's probably a few places online you might be able to get it, but to be honest with you I've tried what was labelled "geisha" in a couple shops in the U.S. (and China, of all places) and it wasn't anywhere near as good as what I get in Colombia, so I don't know whether it's true Geisha or not. You may have to take that trip you've been planning to Colombia, or maybe try one of the online vendors.
In any case, you haven't drunk coffee until you've tried geisha, so I highly recommend someday if you have the opportunity.

So a light roast is best for geisha?

A light or medium roast for sure.
