The Herrera brothers of Café Granja La Esperanza have earned accolades from the SCAA, Roasters Guild, and Coffee Review for meticulous processing and a willingness to experiment with rare varieties like Sudan Rume and Mokka, which have become very popular among our customers.

We're excited to offer this Gesha from the Cerro Azul farm, which presents another stunning flavor profile from our longtime Direct Trade partner. The two-stage fermentation of this lot—both in the intact cherry and then again with the skin removed—allows beautiful florals and sweet fruit notes to shine.

Fermentation: Manual and rigorous picking. Depulped without using water. Fermentation time for this coffee ranges between 19 and 22 hours in whole cherries, and then the skin is removed to start the second fermentation step in parchment and mucilage for 35 hours.

Drying: The coffee is left 48 hours in the silo (average temperature of 35 °C) then passed to solar drying for approximately 15 days.
