Grumpy Mule have been buying Diamond Mountain for several seasons now and it's firmly established in the range as both a favourite of their team and their customers. An amazing coffee from one of the world's best coffee farms which we visited once again in 2013.
Hacienda La Esmeralda is famous for the celebrated Esmeralda Special coffee (Geisha Arabica) and is located in the picturesque highlands surrounding the town of Boquete in Western Panama, perhaps one of the most stunning coffee areas we’ve yet visited.
The Peterson family are passionate about quality coffee and under the management and guidance of third generation farmer Daniel and father Price, they continue to strive for excellence in coffee, careful stewardship of the land and support of both the 45 permanent and 300 seasonal workers and their respective families.
All of the farm and milling activities focus on environmental and social sustainability so that natural habitats are preserved, water courses and resources protected, measures undertaken to minimise erosion and waste organic material composted for fertiliser. Workers are also provided with housing, sanitation and other benefits.
