Esmeralda is the world’s most-awarded coffee farm and the place that first discovered the beloved gesha cultivar. Like all Arabica coffee, gesha is native to Ethiopia. It made its long journey across the Atlantic in the 1930s, first to Costa Rica and then finally to Panama, where it was planted but not fully understood. It took over 80 years until the gesha trees had their fruit separated from the rest of the trees on the farm. Once it was picked, roasted and brewed, this special cultivar changed the world of coffee forever.
This natural processed lot is a mixture from Esmerelda’s neighbouring farms. At Esmeralda, they build different lots from the farms based on quality and taste. This particular lot comes from the farms Jaramillo, Quiel and Cañas Verde, which sit within a small variance of altitude. The coffee grown on these farms is therefore very uniform and the flavour clarity immensely high. This climate uniformity is supported by the Petersons’ deep knowledge of coffee growing. Their experimental farms and the knowledge found there constantly push them to be at the forefront of specialty coffee.
Organic House Blend was created by blending two organic coffees from Latin America: the Colombian Los Vascos and the Nicaraguan San Juan. Carefully roasted to highlight the coffees’ vibrant and natural flavours, House Blend is a crowd pleasing combination of sweeetness and balance.
Organic Classic Blend was created by blending two coffees from Latin America: the Brazillian Dutra and the Colombian Belen. Combining the intense nut-and-chocolate flavours of the former with the smooth sweetness of the latter, this is a big, bold roast which you won’t soon forget.
Organic Decaf is an easy-to-drink, classic coffee. Decaffeinated using the all-natural sparkling water method, it's made from lots grown in the forests of the West Nile. The coffee cherries here ripen slowly, creating a naturally sweet, complex cup which is incredibly smooth and balanced.
