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.

We source directly from producers when we can to make sure the most profit gets to the farmer. Our sourcing values are shown through our icons on each of our coffee labels and on the back of our coffee bags.

Our 340g and 2lb coffee bags are made entirely of from plant materials and breakdown in a relatively short period of time.

Can I put my used bag in the city compost?
Putting these bags in the city of Calgary's compost is not recommended, due to the current processing facility. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost (see further down the page for for info).

Alternative
These bags will break down 90% faster in the landfill than the majority of coffee bags on the market.
