my 2 cents

I tried it.
wasn't good but too fruity for my taste.
would I pay $15 for a cup. Hell no. I paid $5 and spent $40 for 1/4 pound.

Now I can brag and say \"been there, done that\".

I had the pleasure of having John Riopka (owner-partner of Discovery Coffee) hand me a Mug (no less) of La Hacienda Esmerelda...

and then I realized after my first sip that he was sharing his mug of coffee with everyone in the cafe!

Eeep! :P

It was tasty.
He then retrieved the mug from me and proceeded to the next victim... I mean... customer.

I did have some LHE cups to myself... very nice.
Even brewed some of last years crop and this years crop in my own Newco OCS-8 brewer...

...everyone got their own cup thank-you-very-much.

I also tried it because of the hype.

Not worth the money at all. sorry I know you guys are saying otherwise -

Trying anything because of hype is never a good idea...
basing the coffee experience on knowledge and understanding is generally a better idea...
