When it comes to superspecials, Cafe Granja La Esperanza is always on our list. There’s a reason for that. Most of Lex's all-time favourite coffees come from their productions. Our experiences with Cafe Granja start with the first barista competitions we competed in, serious super specialty.

Great trees are often the focal point of great stories, think Newton, think of the Buddha; this Sidra variety is sort of like that - a bit - depends how much you love delicious coffees. The Sidra variety was developed in Ecuador by a private company, taking its name from the tree it was propagated under. This hybrid coffee is a cross mutation between Red Bourbon and Typica; these two varieties are never the top of our list when going through the yummiest, most delectable, or exciting varieties but when they come together it’s like heaven on a round silver spoon.  

Notes of hibiscus, rhubarb, and orange fill the palate here and the intensity of flavour is what drew in.

Fermentation last 48 hours in whole cherries and thanks to higher concentration of sugars it will allow the cup to have more intense notes. The temperature during fermentation is controlled every 6 hours so it won’t reach temperatures above 30ºC.
