Esmeralda Lino 7AS Geisha - Panama - Filter Coffee

Esmeralda Lino 7AS Filter Coffee

Lino 7AS is part of the Esmeralda Special Reserve, an award-winning coffee collection that has garnered continuous international prizes since they first introduced it fifteen years ago. It is sold by direct trade, outside of the Esmeralda Auction, in small quantities.

At Esmeralda they hand-pick the ripest, redden cherries. Their careful attention ensures an elegant and complex cup, with notes of jasmine, stone fruit and bergamot. Nurtured in the volcanic soils of Boquete and sprinkled with the mists of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, this is an exceptional Esmeralda Geisha.
