La Esperanza is a unique lot separation of a single Coffea Arabica varietal, Caturra, grown on a single farm owned by the Herrera Family in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. A fine example of high elevation specialty coffee production in Central America.
Well-produced Guatemalan coffees are known for their clean cup, complexity, and delicate floral and fruit notes. La Esperanza is no exception, with hints of jasmine, melon, and bright, tangy acidity.
From our import partner, Onyx Coffee:
"Mr. Octavio Rafael Herrera Ordoñez, known as 'Otto', worked in coffee for 25 years and is currently retired. The farms are currently under the administration and operation of the second and third generation of the Herrera Family with over 50 years of experience in growing coffee. The family has been pushing the quality of the coffee processing allowing their plants to bring forth their best qualities.
We work closely with Octavio and family, and buy a few different lots and varietal separations, and every year these lots show up for class: They're juicy, complex, and downright delicious."
