More about Granja La Esperanza and Finca Potosi:
Owned by siblings, Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, who come from a long standing coffee producing family. They are now third generation coffee producers, with their grandparents starting in coffee in 1945 right here 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, and here, Cafe Granja La Esperanza began.
When Rigoberto and Luis took over the family operation in the late 90's, they took the labour intensive job of pivoting the farms to organic production. Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land that is now Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production.
They've done major renovations to the farms during the past 30 years of ownership and management, planting new, exotic varieties throughout the 52 producing hectares of Potosi Farm. Here they're producing classic Colombian varieties like Caturra, Colombia and they have beautiful exotics such as Geisha, Sidra, San Juan, Mandela, SL28 and more.
On top of industry leading farm practices, they're also innovating the world of coffee processing, constantly exploring new techniques and processes to bring their coffees to a whole other level such as this XO natural. You will definitely see more offerings from Granja La Esperanza with us throughout the year.
