Hailing from Panama's Green Mountain Highlands located in the small mountain town of Boquete, is one of the most prized farms in all of specialty coffee: Hacienda La Esmeralda ran by the Peterson family. Perhaps most famous for discovering the Gesha varietal and shattering many coffee auction prices over the last 15 years.
We feel a certain sense of privilege to work with this coffee. On a personal level, it's a coffee from a farm that has been so influential to many of us on our small team. It became a beacon for what specialty coffee could be and now in a smaller way, perhaps a beacon for what specialty instant coffee can be.
This Geisha was part of the 2019 Hacienda La Esmeralda Private Collection. It's a washed coffee and was grown at elevations between 1,600 - 1,800 meters above sea level. As you would expect, it's a show stopper! Sparkling clean with flavors of jasmine, layers of citrus and tropical fruits all supported by a creamy milk chocolate base. This is a limited run with approximately 250 boxes produced.
Available in our 6 cup box or 48 cup CUBE. Each packet contains 5g of freeze dried coffee. We recommend 275g of filtered water (hot or cold), give it a stir and enjoy!
