This is a 300g bag 

This coffee is juicy and tropical with notes of apricot and pineapple. The mouthfeel is creamy, reminding us of a flavour of milk chocolate.

This lot is a unique variety called Mandela, which has been developed at La Esperanza. The Mandela cultivar was produced as a new hybrid with the goal of creating high quality coffee that is resistant to diseases. It's a crossing of Caturra x Caturra, crossed with Timor-hybrid, then crossed again with Ethiopian varietals such as Sudan Rume, Daleco, and Villa Sarchi.

La Esperanza is owned by siblings Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, third-generation coffee producers who come from a long-standing coffee-producing family. Their grandparents started their careers in coffee in 1945 at Potosi Farm. After Juan Antonio Herrera and his wife, Blanca Ligia Correa, purchased the land with existing Typica plants, they added three more cultivars: Red Bourbon, Yellow Bourbon, and Caturra. It was then that the family of farms, Cafe Granja La Esperanza, began. Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land for Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production.

This Mandela lot is fermented as whole cherry for 168 hours in sealed tanks. Following the fermentation, they spend two days in silos with controlled temperatures for dehydration. Then finish drying for 7 additional days on solar dryers.


Once your order is received, it will be processed and shipped in 1-3 days.

Delicious coffee!

This coffee is excellent, one of the best I've ever had! The coffee has such a unique smell and flavor -- a real tangy dark dark cherry chocolatey treat. Well worth it for the taste, and an important project for coffee sustainability.

This morning I made it and the aroma of the ground coffee was amazing.I make 2 cups of french press every morning just as the kids are getting up to start their day And this coffee put me in a relaxed calm mood as chaos oaf an 11 year old getting ready for school and a 12 yr old getting ready for on line learning I normally like my coffee with cream and sugar but this is the type of coffee that you enjoy just as itself . Well done very enjoyable! Thanks Cafe Rosso!
