Esmeralda Special Geisha is a collection of high elevation Geisha (1,600 – 1,800 masl) with cupping scores of over 90 points. Coming mostly from our Jaramillo and Cañas Verdes farms, Esmeralda Special Geisha lots are invariably the highest quality Geishas we sell. Though altitude presents challenges for growing and harvesting, it is up in the mountains of Boquete that the unique floral and citrus aromatics of geisha coffee sing brightest. Esmeralda Special Geisha is available both washed and natural processed and ranges in size all the way down to less than one bag of green coffee. Therefore, extra care must be taken to process these small amounts.
