Geisha or Gesha is a variety of coffee[1][2][3] believed to be originated in the Gesha village in Ethiopia. It is considered to produce a very aromatic and floral cup of coffee and the demand for it has grown in recent years.[1]

It was imported from Costa Rica to Panama in the Boquete region. It gained prominence and popularity in 2004, when Hacienda La Esmeralda entered a competition with a lot of Geisha that proved to be very unusual and distinct, attracting record prices. [1]

It received first place in the Best of Panama competitions in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010. El Esmeralda Special received first place at the Specialty Coffee Of America Roaster's Guild competition in 2005, 2006 and 2007. El Esmeralda Special received the highest score in Rainforest Alliance Cupping for Quality competition in 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009.[citation needed]
