Description

Shade-grown and younger than six years old (within its first few seasons of production), the Finca La Esperanza is sourced from a 2.5-acre family farm in San Martin’s Soritor village. The producer, Walter Gutierrez, purchased the once-abandoned Finca La Esperanza in 2007 and transformed it into a marvelous spot for Peru organic coffee to flourish. The Finca La Esperanza coffee is grown alongside corn and cocoa, proving the previous owner wrong and showing anything is possible. Finca La Esperanza’s cup profile has only improved with the farmers’ ever-growing education and organic certification throughout the years.

Coffee is Peru’s most prominent agricultural commodity, and it is the ninth-largest arabica producer in the world. Peru is also an organic coffee hotspot––there are 220,000 organic coffee farms––and high elevations with just the right amount of shade in the Northern Andes. Since farmers traditionally use all-natural methods when growing their beans (natural fertilizer, chemical/pesticide avoidance, and recycling coffee pulp, mulch, and other substances) it was only fitting that they strive for organic coffee excellence. Because of their efforts, the area is known as a sanctuary for birds and other docile wildlife in the balanced ecosystem, and San Martin’s rainforest is abundant with fertile soil.

Cupping Notes: Sweet aroma. Notes of bakers cocoa, sweet tangerine, peach and a dry almond finish. Very good acidity and mouthfeel.
