This washed field blend is an approachable coffee with stone fruit and citrus qualities framing the cup. You will find that these soft fruit flavours are supported by almond and dark chocolate notes. The body is smooth and, overall, it has a clean flavour profile.

Owned by siblings, Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, who come from a long standing coffee producing family. They are now third generation coffee producers. Their grandparents started in coffee in 1945, right here 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, and there, Cafe Granja La Esperanza began. 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.

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.
