    Perched high on the slopes encircling Trujillo, Potosi emerges as the inaugural farm of the Herrera family. Since 1945, its roots have firmly intertwined with the land, nurturing 52 hectares dedicated to coffee cultivation, while 22 hectares breathe freely as lush forest. Beyond the familiar rows, there are pockets of experimentation—fields of geishas, SL34, CGLE17, Sidra, Tabi, and the prized heirloom from Yirgacheffe, each a testament to a legacy steeped in exploration and discovery.

    About the Farm

    Cafe Granja La Esperanza is under the ownership of siblings Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, who hail from a longstanding family deeply rooted in coffee production. They are now third-generation coffee producers, with their family's coffee legacy dating back to 1945 when their grandparents, Juan Antonio Herrera and Blanca Ligia Correa, initiated their coffee journey at the Potosi farm. They started with existing Typica plants and later introduced three more cultivars: Red Bourbon, Yellow Bourbon, and Caturra, marking the establishment of Cafe Granja La Esperanza. Following their grandparents' footsteps, Rigoberto and Luis acquired the land that became Finca La Esperanza and expanded their commitment to organic coffee production.

    La Esperanza is a diverse coffee estate, with numerous coffee varieties cultivated. This farm, the second in their portfolio, spans approximately 35 hectares and features a processing facility where Cerro Azul and La Esperanza coffees are meticulously crafted.

    This lot showcases a highly sought-after coffee variety known as Laurina, or Bourbon Pointu, due to its distinctive teardrop-shaped seed. Laurina is prized for its naturally low caffeine content, vibrant acidity, and delightful sweetness. The Laurina coffee is harvested when the cherries turn purple and is then taken to silos for 48 hours of dehydration. Subsequently, the coffee is spread on raised solar beds for a 15-day drying period.
