Hacienda La Esmerelda

Hacienda La Esmerelda

In 2002, the son Daniel noticed that the coffee bushes in a particular valley produced coffee of a remarkable quality. These superior coffee beans were sold separately as Esmeralda Special. 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 shine brightest. Because of these unique circumstances, only fifty to hundred bags are produced a year. The 2017 crops from Hacienda La Esmeralda, an old coffee farm in Boquete, Panama and an exclusive crop with cupping scores of over 90 points.

Klatch Coffee has two of Lamastus Estates Family ASD Geishas, one being the Elida Geisha Natural ASD, the other Elida Geisha Natural 1028 (Green-Tip ASD).
ASD stands for Anaerobic Slow Dry, wherein the coffee is placed into fermentation tanks for 120 hours with the pulp, and then placed onto drying beds with a thick layer for a total time of five weeks. This ASD processed Geisha coffee was used for brewers cup by Wilford Jr. of Lamastus Estates in 2019. The coffee beans were grown in 1850 Masl in the Torre lot, and this lot is a neighbor lot from the Best of Panama Elida Geisha Green-Tip ASD of 2019.

If you’ve ever done any investigating into the world’s most expensive coffees, you know about Kopi Luwak. This is a bean that grows primarily in Indonesia and is harvested only after it has been eaten, and then digested and egested, by an Asian palm civet—a weasel-like creature that lives and you-know-what-elses in the woods. It’s believed a) that the beans must be pretty tasty for the civet to eat them in the first place and, more important, b) that the insides of the civet add a little je ne sais quoi to the flavor. Seriously. Kopi Luwak is so coveted it can run up to $600 a pound, for a coffee that on its best day and when brewed to perfection is meant to taste like crap.

Only 250 Cups of This Rare Coffee Will Be Sold in the U.S.—All of Them at One SoCal Cafe

Coffee hunters travel the world seeking out the most perfect beans, often grown in tiny batches in far-flung locales. One such crop, the rare Esmeralda Geisha Cañas Verdes Natural, grown only on a single hacienda in the hills of Panama, hit the market over the summer, and it broke all previous records by selling at an international auction for $601 per pound. (The previous most expensive coffee in the world was a mere $350 per pound.) Of the 100 pounds that were sold to coffee roasters around the world, only one company in the entire United States was able to secure any—SoCal’s own Klatch Coffee, which bought 11 pounds of the precious beans.

...the best table of coffee I ever cupped…
For those of us in the coffee industry who run a business, whether as a roaster, green bean broker, or other, the highlight of our day is when we get to cup. So, visiting a coffee producing country as an international judge for a coffee competition is a wonderful experience. Whether it is Cup of Excellence, Taza de Oro or another competition, the experience is truly exceptional and rewarding. But one such competition is unique and different from all others, that competition is the Best of Panama. This past week I attended Best of Panama as one of 17 International Judges from around the world. T
