Hacienda La Esmeralda is the epicenter of the rediscovery of the Geisha variety and the subsequent fascination the Specialty Coffee industry has had with the variety. In 2004, the Peterson family decided to separate lots based on their location on the farm, and kept them separated throughout processing. By doing so, the Peterson's were able to isolate the cup profile of the Geisha variety, experiencing the juicy acidity and multi-layered aromatics that Geisha has to offer. While common practice today, this decision to separate lots was progressive and experimental at the time.

The Mario 51 micro-lot is grown at one of the highest elevations at Hacienda La Esmeralda's Jaramillo farm. With cool temperatures, high humidity, and massive shade trees that have been standing for ages, Jaramillo is the perfect location for making the aromatics of the Geisha variety sing. Mario 51 features aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle, and orange blossom, with fruit flavors of peach, apricot, raspberry and limeade. Honeycomb sweetness, a bright acidity, and silky mouthfeel finish with an aftertaste that reminds us of a fine oolong tea.
