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 the country as well as the rare Sudan Rume variety.
We are delighted to once again bring back the Sudan Rume variety from Granja. Sudan Rume occupies the highest section of Las Margaritas. Benefitting from slower maturation of the cherries at this higher elevation, Sudan Rume shines through and showcases what an exotic variety and careful processing can do when combined.
Cherries are manually picked and left for 48 hours in a silo, then moved to solar drying for 28 days.
Enjoy complex tropical fruit notes such as mango, pineapple, passionfruit combined with intense sweetness, creamy body, and a long pleasant aftertaste. Please enjoy!
