This coffee comes from the highly esteemed Cafe Granja La Esperanza, suppliers of ultra specialty, high altitude coffees from Colombia. Their goal: to obtain the most perfect cup of coffee. This particular coffee is intensely elegant and a must-have for lovers of high-quality geisha coffee. Super sparkly with a creamy body, it boasts tasting notes of jasmine, raspberry lemonade, watermelon candy, and vanilla.
Cafe Granja La Esperanza has won numerous awards with their coffees including the Good Food Awards and the SCA Triple Crown Award (the Brewer’s Cup, Barista Championship, and Roaster Championship). This coffee comes from their most award-winning farm, Cerro Azul. Coffee is picked at optimum ripeness and fermented in whole cherries for 19 to 22 hours. The coffee is then depulped (the cherry skin removed) and fermented for a second time in parchment and mucilage for around 35 hours. The coffee is then washed and dried on raised beds in highly controlled greenhouses.
