We were delighted to receive the very special package below from Rosetta Roastery this week. As part of their 10 year anniversary celebrations, they have released this extra special coffee from Hacienda La Esmeralda, Panama. They first bought coffee from this farm 10 years ago in 2011, so it is only fitting that this coffee features as part of the celebrations.
What can we say about this exceptional coffee? In a word: elegant.
But we can't limit ourselves to just one word. It is the kind of coffee that you want to savour. The Geisha varietal is revered in the specialty coffee industry for its floral aromatics and natural sweetness and this offering from Hacienda La Esmeralda is the epitome of these characteristics. Balanced, sweet, delicate, but distinctive. It is an evolved coffee, one could say. Much of the high-end coffee we taste is distinctive because experimental processing in very much on trend and creates some startling and other-worldly coffee experiences. But this coffee. This is a coffee that is refined, a coffee that through years of experience and hard work, is pure and simple elegance.
We would highly recommend that you take the plunge and get your hands on some of this exceptional coffee.
We feature a long-form read on Rosetta's journey so far in the Summer 2021 Edition of the Print Magazine. You can find it at one of our wonderful distributors or you can order it to be delivered straight to your door as part of our subscription.
We followed the recommended brewing instructions that come in the artfully produced information booklet that accompanies the coffee delivery.
