Trujillo, Valle del Cauca
Granja La Esperanza
Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera
Caturra and Colombia
Stone Fruit, Caramel, Orange
The coffee from this lot is an Estate blend comprised of Caturra and Colombia varieties. It's been fully washed in a traditional ceramic tank, without water, for a range of 30-35 hours. Following this, the coffee has been dried in a mechanical silo until achieving 11% final moisture content.
The farm is owned by siblings Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, who are from a long-standing coffee-producing family. They are now third-generation coffee producers, with their grandparents starting in coffee in 1945. After Juan Antonio Herrera and his wife Blanca Ligia Correa purchased the land, with existing typica plants, they added three more cultivars, red bourbon, yellow bourbon and caturra, and here, Cafe Granja La Esperanza began. Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land for Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production.
