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 Cafe Granja La Esperanza was born. Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land for Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production.
This lot is a blend of three different coffee varieties that are cultivated at La Esperanza, Caturra, Colombia and Mandela. These are harvested together and co-fermented after being pulped in open-air tanks for about 35 hours.
Once your order is received, it will be processed and shipped in 1-3 days.

La Esperanza is my go-to morning coffee. I'm a huge fan and regularly get the 2-lb bags whenever they are available.
This coffee was very smooth and pleasant to drink. I always like Rosso coffee… they have very tasty coffees in their shops and La Esperanza is one of the best!
Another tasty coffee from Rosso!
I was hoping to taste a bit more of unique taste with it being ‘washed’, but I personally didn’t notice much of a difference between this and Day Tripper.
Hey Paul, thank you for taking the time to review our La Esperanza. We're sorry to hear you weren't able to experience all of the flavours it has to offer, but glad to hear you still enjoyed it in your cup :)
The combination of citrus, caramel and almond produces a nice and light smooth blend of coffee replicating a nice sunny pleasant spring morning.
We're going to get you writing our descriptions because this sounds great!! Thanks so much for a lovely review :) :)
Amazing, excellent, and smooth coffee.
