Equator won for its submission of Hacienda La Esmeralda’s Gesha grown in the highlands of Boquete, Panama. Equator officials received the award from the legendary Chez Panisse founder Alice Waters.
The coffee is from Panama’s renowned Hacienda La Esmeralda, a farm owned and operated by the Peterson family since 1967. Esmeralda has become famous for its production of the Gesha variety.
This fame resulted from a trial conducted on the farm in 2002 to isolate Gesha cherries from fruit of those of other varieties. The result was the discovery of the exceptional cup quality found in this low yielding cultivar.
Due to limited availability and to maintain freshness, Equator will be roasting this coffee once a week on Wednesday. Order now and they will roast and ship the following Wednesday. MORE INFO.
