One of Jessica Rodriguez's competition roasts, when she was representing Klatch Coffee at the SCA Brewers Cup Competition of 2017. It offers the unique aroma of chocolate strawberries, with flavors of blackberries, sugar cane, and rose hips. Nectarine acidity, a juicy body, and the aftertaste of peach makes this complex cup of coffee one of the most unique and decadent roasts we've ever had.
This unique coffee from the rare Geisha botanical coffee plant is produced in Panama and has won many awards and even called "God in a cup" by one of the jurors for the ‘Best of Panama’ competition.
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 newest crops from El Velo, from Hacienda La Esmeralda, an old coffee farm in Boquete, Panama and an exclusive crop with cupping scores of over 90 points. This coffee has held the record for being the most expensive coffee sold at an auction three times and Mike has gotten a hold of some of these exquisite beans just for you.
