Rainbows & Unicorns

Sold out. Hacienda Esmeralda is one of the most well-known specialty producers in the world - for good reason. They have continuously won the Best of Panama for many years in a row since 2004 after selectively cultivating a varietal known as Geisha that they bought and planted originally as to defend against the scourge of leaf rust.

The Petersons are meticulous about harvest, processing and lot separation and the quality of their coffee throughout the years is a testament to that.

Esmeralda often takes the title of the most expensive coffee in the world because of the prices it achieves within its private auction. There is often tense bidding with some lots going upwards of $100usd per kilo.

We've got our hands on a very small amount of the extremely special coffee thanks to Collaborative Coffee Source. Robert was the first European roaster to forge a relationship with the family and now purchases directly, outside the auction.

This years harvest is the best I've tasted in the last 5 years. It is elegant, zesty, silky and vibrant.

We have 7 250g boxes left to send out. Get in quick!

  • Plum & Almonds

    Having spent some time living in Andean Ecuador, only a few hundred kilometers south from where finca Los Idolos is located in Nariño, Colombia in the south western corner of Colombia, I am reminded of the immense variety of geography, climates, ecosystems, and subsequent biodiversity of this area of the world. This coffee from Edgar Meneses at Finca Los Idolos has a plum-like acidity, gentle sweetness, and is well balanced by an almond and creamy yet clear and clean body.

  • Honey & Rose

    That feeling when it’s still a little brisk outside, and you can’t help but sit in the bright sunshine, letting it warm you after the long dark winter. That is what this coffee is — it’s highly anticipated springtime, finally right around the corner. This cup contains honey sticky sweetness and rose; it’s balanced with a hint of refreshing bitters.

  • Fruktnøtt

    Everyone has their favorite. Be it Kvik Lunsj, Firkløver, or Helnøtt, we all have that one particular Norwegian chocolate bar that we gravitate towards. This tasty coffee from Finca Los Pirineos in El Salvador is those of you who can’t get enough Fruktnøtt in your life.

  • Dried Apricot & Spices

    A wintry perfection of dried fruits and cardamom spice. Just what you need to warm up in cozy comfort.

  • Star Anise & Dark Syrup

    Another stunning coffee from the Caballero Collective in Honduras. This coffee has the best of both worlds, with a lot of brightness and a lovely, full, syrupy body.

  • Milk chocolate & wild berries

    Sold out. This gorgeous coffee from Honduras has so much to give.
