Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Intricate and lush; tartly sweet. Caramel, hibiscus and rose, candied ginger, honeydew melon in aroma and small cup. Lean though smooth mouthfeel. Floral notes in particular carry into a remarkably long, complex finish. Flavor carries intact into two parts milk, where a hint of grapefruity acidity is juxtaposed with the milky sweetness.
Notes: Coffee from trees of the botanical variety "Gesha" or "Geisha" grown on farmer Price Peterson's Hacienda La Esmeralda in Panama has consistently broken records paid for a green coffee. With its long, boat-shaped beans and distinctive floral and chocolate cup, the Esmeralda Panama Gesha continues one of the world's most unique coffees. The Coffee Academïcs is a purveyor and roaster of specialty coffee in Hong Kong since 2012. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Intricate and luscious; richly sweet. Caramel, hibiscus and rose, candied-ginger, and honeydew melon in aroma and small-cup. Very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Sweet floral notes and buttery richness carries through a remarkable finish. Richly flavor saturated in two- to four-parts milk with a touch of grapefruit acidity, all of which is buoyantly juxtapositioned with the milky sweetness.
