Graciano Cruz is something of an enigma. A scientist, coffee producer, party animal, visionary, and ecologist. It's impossible to succinctly describe him - there aren't enough words. He's a wild man – and we think he's awesome! In addition to his two farms in Panama, Graciano also operates in El Salvador and works on projects in Ethiopia, Peru, Taiwan, and Brazil. The highest sections of Emporio Estate sit at a staggering 2,100 meters above sea level, and it’s on these upper sections that Graciano's Geisha grows amongst the wild native cloudy rainforest. As a leading example of environmental conscious agriculture, Graciano processes all his coffee using honey or natural methods, significantly reducing the water used. The cherry for this lot was stored in small fruit crates before processing to prevent bruising or tearing of the skin and was then anaerobically fermented for five days, creating a very complex profile.
How to Drink: Just like you wouldn't add soda your best whiskey, this amazing coffee is meant to be drank black with no sugar or cream.
