I'm still quite new to this whole thing so when I saw the price of this I nearly fell off the chair https://kissthehippo.com/products/panama-esmeralda-gesha

Has anyone had this bean before (from this roaster or another). What was the experience like for you? Would you buy again? How quickly were you able to dial in?

I had some Hacienda Esmerelda last year from Origin as a birthday/Christmas present to myself. I've made it a once a year thing, so this year I've preordered some Yemenia from Square Mile... Which is a similar price! 

It was very nice, but it's definitely overpriced. There's limited quantity and it's won a lot of awards, so demand is high vs supply. 

It's easy to make filter straight out the box. At that price I wouldn't put it anywhere near an espresso machine.

My experience of geishas in general , delicate , best for filter and black. Generally lost as espresso a bit, and don’t put milk anywhere near it .
