This beautifully structured coffee opens with aromas of strawberry jam, guava, and cocoa nib. Notes of tamarind and butter toffee accompany purple grape sweetness in the cup. Almond and red grapefruit notes emerge in the layered finish, with a bit of thyme lingering on the tongue.

Available whole bean in an 8oz or 4oz pouch. This coffee roasts and ships on Mondays and Thursdays. Please scroll down for more details.

After picking, the cherries are placed in fermentation tanks for 7 days of anaerobic fermentation. They are then dehydrated for 24 hours in a silo at 37°C (98.6°F) before drying for 20 days in a parabolic sun dryer. Once the drying process is complete, the coffee rests in a temperature-controlled warehouse.

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 SCA 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.
