About Granja La Esperanze Granja La Esperanza, a group of farms in El Valle Del Cauca and Cundinamarca owned by brothers Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera. The farms are up there as some of the most progressive, with an approach akin to fine winemaking. Varieties are chosen for flavour attributes. Trained pickers go for ripest cherry only, and are paid by the day, not by weight. This enlightened approach continues, with brix meter testing of every delivery to the mill to measure sugar levels and adjust processing and drying accordingly. And you can taste every ounce of time, energy and money in these coffees. Savour this elaborate and spectacular series!
