Hacienda La Esmeralda, the farm in Boquete, Panama that has sold their Geisha varietal lots for upwards of $130/lb (market price for May contracts is about $1.07 now), has put up some fun photos of their 2009 Geisha harvest on their facebook!

Note the ripe cherry control. Boomshakalaka! I can’t wait to try some.
For those who aren’t familiar with the Esmeralda story, here is a Maclean’s article on the 2007 crop (the one that sold for $130/lb): Is one cup of coffee worth $15?
