Grey Seal Coffee - Panama Hacienda El Esmeralda

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

Coming from the award winning farm, Hacienda La Esmeralda, we were incredibly excited to receive this coffee. The coffee cherries are carefully inspected with great skill and consideration, ensuring that the coffee that is produced by this farm is always of the highest quality.
Roaster's tip: The boquete is a very special coffee, it has a very balanced complexity of almonds and pomegranates that is very deep. It makes a beautiful espresso, or a light filter.

As they write themselves, the Hacienda La Esmeralda "strive for absolute consistency and excellence in preparation". We could not agree more. The lots that come from this estate are always impressive, and this one definitely does not buck the trend. It stands out to us on the cupping table with its sheer depth of flavour and silky mouthfeel and with their own social projects in the farm, housing a nursery to care and educate the children of the pickers, providing dry foods to every harvester at the end of each week, offering medical facilities, and paying well over double the market price with bonuses as well as a "fun-filled" Christmas Party. Truly an incredible farm.
