“Panama Esmeralda Geisha is my favourite coffee because it reflects my cooking philosophy in the cup. It is elegant, balanced and with a strong identify. I am surprised every time when I taste it and rediscover all its nuances, and I am amazed at its complexity.”

ANTONIO GUIDA -
2 MICHELIN RESTAURANT SETA, MILAN

Hacienda La Esmeralda became one of the most famous coffee estates in the world when it pioneered the Panama Geisha bean circa 2004.

EVERY COFFEE TELLS A STORY

The varietal is a native of Ethiopia, where it was first gathered for export in the 1930s. Slowly and without fanfare, the bean made its way to small-scale coffee farms in the mountains of Panama, where for decades it grew undistinguished from other varietals.

An outbreak of blight in the early 2000s changed everything. Farmers at Hacienda La Esmeralda observed certain coffee plants thrived while others perished, and that those hardier specimens yielded a noticeably different bean. Upon learning that this elongated bean was the Geisha varietal, they separated those plants and moved them to higher elevations. The first harvest produced a coffee of outstanding quality, with a flavour and aroma unlike any other.

The Panama Geisha is today recognized as an exceptional bean, and Hacienda La Esmeralda continues to astonish competition judges and discerning coffee drinkers alike. The estate’s Panama Geisha beans, grown for a short season in micro-lots, are some of the most expensive in the world. This superstar product has set multiple records for auction prices and won first prize at the Panama Cup and other elite contests year after year. At Difference Coffee we’re thrilled to be able to present Panama Geisha coffee purchased directly from this most storied of estates.
