Panama Esmeralda Special – that’s the name of this magnificent coffee. The Esmeralda is an heirloom coffee – 100% Geisha, meaning the coffee plants are thought to be an original Ethiopian varietal. This coffee has won 10 first place Coffee Competition Awards and is called by some as the finest coffee on the planet. Read the Coffee Report (click here)
I had the chance to taste this coffee a couple of years ago when visiting Batdorf and Bronson in Olympia, WA. I was struck by how smooth is was and it’s favor was completely unique – mango, pineapple, cinnamon, vanilla. When Oliver was here 3 weeks ago, we decided to bring in the Esmeralda and do a cupping with our staff and customers. Well, the first 5 pounds was gone in less than a week along with a second 5 pound shipment! We have also had many customers asking if the beans can be reserved for the holidays.
So, here’s the deal – Scott Merle, Roastmaster/Green Buyer at Batdorf has agreed to reserve the Esmeralda for Tazza D’Oro. Scott has set aside 20 lbs and 5 lbs have already been reserved. We are also selling it by the cup, as a 4 cup French Press and whole bean.
