This intensely fruity natural leads with aromas of cherry liqueur, dried apricot, and milk chocolate. Flavors of sherry and hibiscus dominate the cup, with a buttery, juicy body. Pineapple sweetness and fresh strawberry acidity lead to a refreshingly spiced aftertaste of tamarind, ginger, and nutmeg.

Our roast of last year's harvest received 93 Points from Coffee Review, and this new crop is equally promising!

The Story

From the Herrera brothers at Café Granja La Esperanza:

"This rich and expressive profile resurged from the ashes of our Potosi farm devastated a few months ago by a voracious fire, leaving just dust under our shoes. As always in Café Granja La Esperanza, we looked at the bright side of things and that is how we found ourselves in front of an empty space to redesign and organize our entire production facility. We adopted three dragons to help us bring to life, with their fire, one of our most recognized and demanded profiles of last season. The versatility of the dragons showed us new ways of enhancing natural notes in this already beautiful profile making it richer in taste and intensity." 

Production Notes from Granja La Esperanza

The coffee cherries are picked manually and rigorously sorted before fermenting for 10 hours under controlled temperature. After fermentation, the coffee is left in a silo for 48 hours, then moved to a solar drying facility for 24 to 48 hours, then returned to the silo until it reaches a humidity of 11% (approximately 120 hours of drying).
