"You often hear me saying that the best coffee is the one you like, after years in coffee, I realize that it's the one you share. We started Memli coffee lab 1 year ago with three missions - to provide sensory excellence by conveying certain moods while always keeping the origin characteristics - to showcase the full traceability of each coffee we source - and finally to give you the tools and knowledge to understand different profiles, origins, regions, processes to fully enjoy the cup of coffee you are drinking. We hope you'll enjoy this precious coffee. We sourced this coffee to give tribute to the first ge(i)sha in Panama that contributed to its fame today and to celebrate our first year. Thank you for the love."
Esmeralda’s gesha won the Best of Panama competition in 2004 and vaulted the unique combination of the gesha genetics, the terroir of Boquete’s volcanic soils, and the specific techniques of the Petersons, into permanent legend. Esmeralda’s gesha coffee is lush and floral, with distinct citrus blossom and jasmine fragrances, and custard-like sugars.
