This is an SHB EP grade Rain Forest Alliance certified natural processed coffee from Hacienda La Esmeralda, which is located in the Boquete region of Panama. This particular Diamond Mountain lot is comprised entirely of Catuai variety grown at an altitude of 1600-1800 masl on the Jaramillo and El Velo farms. Natural processing at Hacienda La Esmeralda generally features drying for 3 to 5 days on concrete patios (8 hours per day). After cherries have reached sufficient dryness they are rotated into Guardiola driers for 72 hours to round out the drying process and prevent fermentation.
It is produced by the same family that produces the famous (and much more expensive) La Esmeralda Gesha.
Unlike the delicate Gesha from this farm, this Catuai variety is much bolder with stronger notes of chocolates & honey yet balanced well with a pleasant acidity and floral hints that keep each sip as enjoyable as the first
Area: Boquete, West Panama
