2017 marks Hacienda La Esmeralda's 50th anniversary and the Esmeralda Special Auction's 10th. We're very lucky to win a lot of Mario Carnaval at $51/lb. We also managed to secure another lot of 50lb that we planned to release and roast with our new Loring S15.
Some of you might consider this as old crop. But we have managed to keep it pristine by storing it frozen inside a vacuum bag. If you haven't tried any geisha nor Hacienda La Esmeralda's, we really encourage you to give it a try. We believe this is the perfect example of a geisha.
Compared to Mario Carnaval, this Porton Pascua has much more layers, intense aromatic of jasmine, apricot jam, and denser mouthfeel.
Since we are now roasting on Loring S15, we will only roast Esmeralda and process your order once we have enough orders to roast a batch. But it usually won't be too long! We believe it will worth all the wait!
Please also note that the size of the bag is 100g (not our standard 200g). Enough for you to brew for yourself and share with your loved ones!
