Panama Geisha Coffee

The Coffea arabica coffee plant varietal Geisha (Coffea arabica var. geisha) has won numerous coffee tasting awards in recent years, creating a high demand for the coffee at auctions.

Panama Geisha Coffee Growing Region

Panama Geisha is grown in the highlands of the Boquete region in the Chiriqui Province of western Panama. The particular coffee that won these awards was Esmerelda Special grown by the farm Hacienda La Esmerelda where elevations are from 1,450 to 1,700 feet above sea level on the slopes of Mt. Maru.

Distinguishing Characteristics of Panama Geisha Coffee

Geisha coffee plants are known for their elongated fruits, or coffee cherry, and the Geisha coffee is distinguished for its light body with honey and citrus flavors that provide an outstanding taste profile and cup character.

Geisha coffee exhibits a subdued yet intense floral and jasmine-like aroma and a distinct though delicate acidity, balanced and bright with shimmers of white wine and notes of berries, mango, papaya, and mandarin oranges. The long aftertaste/finish provides distinct bergamot-like notes.

Origins of the Geisha Coffee Plant Varietal

The Geisha varietal was first discovered in Abyssinia in southwest Ethiopia in 1931, and was first brought to Panama from Costa Rica in 1963.

Due to the recent success of Geisha in Panama, many coffee farmers in Central America are now planting the Geisha varietal. Also see Panama Coffee.

Park Slope can be tough to characterize because it’s both lauded and derided: lauded for its beautiful brownstones, excellent schools, delicious restaurants and lush parks; derided because there are lots of families, so the hipster set calls its residents The Stroller Brigade.
