This peaberry lot from Café Granja La Esperanza's Cerro Azul farm is beautifully tropical. Aromas of nutmeg, strawberry, and pineapple lead to notes of papaya, tamarind, and a touch of white tea in the cup. Juicy pineapple acidity fades into a finish of peach and chocolate.

Cerro Azul is the highest-altitude farm at Café Granja La Esperanza, producing some of their most prized Geshas. This lot consists of peaberries sorted and separated from a larger Gesha lot.
Nearly a century old, and spread across five farms in Valle del Cauca and Cundinamarca, 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 SCAA 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.
