Grower José Alberto Sánchez Suárez of Finca La Esperanza is the sole producer of this single estate microlot from his family farm in Sevilla, Colombia within the Valle del Cauca department. Sevilla is located about 90 miles north of the capital city of Cali, which is home to one of our other microlot producers, Neftali Fernández Gómez of Finca Loma Linda.
The La Esperanza is comprised of Castillo, Caturra and Typica varietals that are washed and patio dried; the farm itself lies at an incredible elevation of 5,700-6,100 feet above sea level. A small plot of the estate, roughly 8.4 acres, is reserved exclusively for the cultivation of the Esperanza microlot. This limited availability offering is 4C certified as a sustainable coffee and is grown under strict standards that have helped reduce environmental impact and increase profitability. The cup has good acid, a nice snap, a creamy body, great aroma and notes of molasses, orange-citrus and some sweet hints of sugar cane.The lot is harvested twice per year, once from April to May and a second mitaca from November to January.
