Pioneering Excellence

Today, Hacienda La Esmeralda epitomizes Geisha Arabica coffee excellence. This familial treasure, born in 1967, reached its zenith in 2004 when it revolutionized the coffee landscape with the rediscovery of the Geisha bean. Unveiling the full spectrum of flavor and aroma in the pure Geisha variety, the estate triumphed in the 2004 Best of Panama competition, setting an auction record for the highest price ever paid for coffee. Consistently rated in the mid-90s by cuppers, it stands as a testament to Hacienda La Esmeralda's extraordinary prowess in crafting specialty coffee.

In simple terms, the Private Collection is a true delight for Geisha Coffee aficionados.
