La Esperanza is owned by siblings, Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, third-generation coffee producers, who come from a long-standing coffee-producing family. Their grandparents started their careers in coffee in 1945 at Potosi farm. 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. It was then that Cafe Granja La Esperanza was born. Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land for Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production.

Many different coffee varieties are planted throughout La Esperanza. This was the second farm, with Potosi being the first, spanning approximately 35 hectares with a processing facility where Cerro Azul and La Esperanza coffees are perfected. 

This lot is an Estate blend, comprised of Caturra, Colombia and Mandela 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 mechanical silo until achieving 11% final moisture content.

Mandela is a variety that was developed by Cafe Granja la Esperanza, right here on La Esperanza. It's a cross of Caturra x Caturra, crossed again with Timor-hybrid, then again crossed with Ethiopian materials such as Sudan Rume, Daleco and Villa Sarchi.
