Translation

Hacienda La Esmeralda is known for its variety of unique coffee beans. In August this year, the coffee beans they cultivated set a world record for the price a pound paid for coffee at US$ 601. This ground breaking geisha coffee was introduced from Ethiopia. Originally, it had only been used as the windbreak of the farm. Not until someone noticed its unique flavor, it soon became very popular. This coffee has variety of flavours, such as jasmine, lychee, peach, etc. These flavors are very rare. Mike Perry, who participated in the coffee competition as one of the judges, said: “The Geisha coffee drives me crazy. Comparing with other coffee beans, this is truly the king of coffee!”
