About Hacienda La Esmeralda

Hacienda La Esmeralda Geishas have earned the highest honors (and auction prices) in the specialty coffee world, and for good reason. These coffees are some of the most challenging to grow and process, but with staggering results. Esmeralda coffees are grown in perfect microclimates, tended and harvested with the utmost care, and processed with precision to arrive in your cup bursting with the signature aroma of Esmeralda.

Bosque 3

Bosque 3 Special Washed Geisha

This delicately roasted Geisha features a floral aroma of jasmine and lily, a creamy body, and bright acidity. Vanilla and a white grape sweetness are present in the cup, rounding into an exquisite finish of poached peaches and jasmine tea.

The Bosque 3 nanolot comes from the Jaramillo farm, located between 5250 to 5900 feet in the mountains of Boquete, Panama. Although the altitude presents challenges for growing and harvesting, the volcanic soil and cool, humid nights bring out the finest qualities of the Geisha variety. This coffee comes from the same lot as Bosque 4, but is harvested from a different cluster of trees, giving it unique flavor characteristics.

Mario 3 

Mario 3 (Carnaval) Special Washed Geisha

This delicately roasted Geisha features a heavily floral aroma of magnolia and lily. When brewed it has a silky body and vibrant acidity. A note of rosewater is complimented by an apricot jam sweetness and a heady finish of lily, honey, and raspberry.

The Mario lot comes from the Jaramillo farm, growing between 4900 to 5400 feet in the mountains of Boquete, Panama. It is the oldest section of the farm planted with Geisha at Hacienda La Esmeralda. Each year, nanolots from Mario are separated by months and process. This particular Washed Geisha was harvested in February, the month of Carnaval.

Jeff Taylor visited Hacienda La Esmeralda to find this coffee on the cupping table shortly after it was removed from the drying process.

“This was a lot destined for auction, but as I was visiting and cupping for competition coffees, I was able to acquire this lot before it was committed for auction.”

Noria

Noria Special Natural Geisha

Noria scored a 95 Rating from Coffee Review!

The Noria nanolot comes from the Jaramillo farm, located between 5250 to 5900 feet in the mountains of Boquete, Panama. Although the altitude presents challenges for growing and harvesting, the volcanic soil and cool, humid nights bring out the finest qualities of the Geisha variety.

This delicately roasted Natural Geisha features a honeysuckle and lime zest aroma. When brewed it has a creamy body and balanced acidity. Look for notes of watermelon and rosé wine with a mango sweetness. The finish is warm and comforting with a flavor of bergamot and Swiss chocolate. 

Bosque 4

Bosque 4 Special Washed Geisha

This delicately roasted Geisha features an apple blossom and orange zest aroma. When brewed it has a silky body, and notes of honey and sweet lime with a crisp acidity and blood orange sweetness. The finish is compelling with a hint of jasmine and taste of passion fruit.

The Bosque 4 nanolot comes from the Jaramillo farm, located between 5250 to 5900 feet in the mountains of Boquete, Panama. Although the altitude presents challenges for growing and harvesting, the volcanic soil and cool, humid nights bring out the finest qualities of the Geisha variety. This coffee comes from the same lot as Bosque 3, but is harvested from a different cluster of trees, giving it unique flavor characteristics.
