APRICOT • ALMOND • CARAMEL
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 is a clean flavour profile.

At the Farm, La Esperanza
Owned by siblings, Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, who come from a long standing coffee producing family. They are now third generation coffee producers, with their grandparents starting 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 here, 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.
We're also featuring a natural Mandela from La Esperanza. We'd recommend you try that next to this washed Field Blend :)

Disposing of Biotre Bags
Can I put this in the city compost?
Our Biotre bags are made of from plant materials and 60% can breakdown in a relatively short period of time.
Putting these bags in the city compost is not recommended. However, you can compost the outer lining in a healthy home compost which will break down within 12 weeks. Dispose of the sugar cane layer in the garbage afterward.
