Café Granja La Esperanza's Hybrid Washed process begins with a two-stage fermentation combining elements of the traditional Natural and Washed processes: 19-22 hours with the skin of the cherries still intact, followed by 35 hours after removing the skin. After fermentation and washing it is mechanically dried to a moisture content of 10.5%.

Nearly a century old, and spread across five farms in Valle del Cauca and Cundinamarca, Colombia, Café Granja La Esperanza has taken great strides under the Herrera brothers’ leadership and forward-thinking vision. In the last decade, the farm has transitioned away from traditional commodity-market coffees to the delicate and exquisite varieties coveted by the specialty coffee industry.

The Herrera brothers' patience and willingness to experiment with rare varieties has won them numerous accolades from the SCAA and Roasters Guild. They are also known for their fair and innovative production and labor practices. Optimal work conditions are a priority at the estate, where workers are paid fair wages and child labor is not permitted.
