Finca La Esperanza was founded over half a century ago by Sr. Octavio Herrera. Sr. Herrera managed nearly every facet of the farm’s operation for decades, but he is now semi-retired and watches over the three generations of his family that contribute daily to to the farm’s operations. Octavio’s son Otto is in charge of day-to-day operations.
This lot, Los Cedros, comes an area of the farm named after the old cedar trees in the area that provide shade to the coffee. The Herrera family’s attention to detail and good farming practices is evident in the cup.
The fragrance of this coffee suggests rich maple, pear, and a herbal rosemary. In the cup, the pear is turns to berry jam and sweet valencia orange. The rosemary comes in as a nice top note to the cup. The body to this coffee is full and juicy and reminds us of biting into a raspberry pie.
