La Esmeralda's Gesha variety first appeared in 2004 when it won first place in the Best of Panama Competition, taking the jury by storm when the Petersons decided to change their coffee entry, selecting only their carefully grown Gesha variety. Gesha is now established as one of the great and most expensive varieties of Arabica.

La Esmeralda deserves great praise not only for the Peterson’s original vision but for how well crafted the coffee is—great sweetness indicates real care in picking strictly ripe fruit. Almost every year we have preferred the lot grown on the plot called Mario.

We highly recommend their website, perhaps the most complete, most informative of all farm site: La Esmeralda
