Emilio Lopez Diaz is a truly special coffee producer whose family has been growing coffee in Santa Ana for six generations. We've been buying from Emilio's Finca Ayutepeque for the past 4 years which we also feature in our Profiler Blend and will continue to build upon this fruitful relationship for many years ahead. 

 

Emilio has reserved the highest slopes of his farm - named 'La Cumbre' for his prized micro-lots. Natural Geisha from La Cumbre won 1st and 2nd place in the Cup of Excellence in 2018 in Emilio's first ever entry year, so we're delighted to showcase this famed lot.

 

This famed varietal has its ancestry in Ethiopia but was brought to Panama in the 1950's to be cultivated. Not favoured by farmers due to being brittle and low yielding, it was never widely cultivated. The varietal resurfaced in the spotlight in 2005 when the Peterson family of Boquete, Panama, entered it into the "Best of Panama" auction and it won, selling for a then record setting price. Today, most Geisha grown in Central & South America descends from those original plots in Panama.
