We are beyond excited to offer coffees again from our friends at Cafe Granja La Esperanza.
Producer Rigoberto Herrera of Cafe Granja La Esperanza has spent the last several years experimenting and pushing coffee innovation. At their five farms, he has planted several varieties not typically found in Colombia. These include some of the earliest plantings of Geisha trees in among other non-indigenous varieties.
Cerro Azul Geisha Natural is one of our favourite coffees from Cafe Granja La Esperanza, year after year. We have been buying from Rigo since 2011 and our founder, Kapo Chiu, used Cerro Azul Geisha to win 2nd Place in the 2014 World Barista Championships.
This precious lot of geisha was processed as a natural, which provides a high level of complexity in fruit flavours as well as acidity, while maintaining the primary flavour profile of the geisha variety -- floral, citrus, and delicate tea-like body.
