THE TRUE ORIGIN COFFEE
WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
At Hacienda La Esmeralda we are proud to be the true origin of the wonders of Panama Geisha. The year 2004 marked a spot in coffee history with the discovery on our farms of the beautiful attributes and diverse cup profiles of geisha coffee. Geisha’s perfumy nature, filled with intense jasmine florals and delicate notes of stone fruits, not only enamored the coffee world but set a precedent for future Geisha appraisal.
Since then we have produced rare record-breaking microlots while refining our production, fermentation and drying techniques. This dedication has led us to new and exciting sensory journeys. Yet our founding principles and core production values remain untouched.

The home of esmeralda geisha
Hacienda La Esmeralda is iconic for having rediscovered Geisha in 2004. It was a happenstance of altitude and lot separation that discovered Geisha’s amazing flavors and aromatics. Since then, we have worked hard to create the infrastructure that supports a Geisha production that consistently delivers the attributes that made the world fall in love with this special coffee variety.
