Hacienda La Esmeralda is the epicenter of the rediscovery of the Geisha variety and the subsequent fascination the Specialty Coffee industry has had with the variety. In 2004, the Peterson family decided to separate lots based on their location on the farm, and kept them separated throughout processing. By doing so, the Peterson's were able to isolate the cup profile of the Geisha variety, experiencing the juicy acidity and multi-layered aromatics that Geisha has to offer. While common practice today, this decision to separate lots was progressive and experimental at the time.
This Fundador microlot was grown at Hacienda La Esmeralda's Cañas Verdes farm. With cool temperatures, high humidity, and massive shade trees that have been standing for ages, Cañas Verdes is the perfect location for making the aromatics of the Geisha variety sing. After harvesting, the coffee cherries were slowly dried on raised beds for 27 days, infusing the coffee seed with aromatic fruity notes that carry through to the cup.
