About the growers

La Esperanza farm is situated in the Trujillo municipality and is one of 5 farms making up the Cafe Granja La Esperanza. It contains around 96,500 trees over 34.3 hectares. Often seen in pictures due to the picturesque U shaped house surrounding a courtyard, it produces 11 lots that make up the full offerings from CGLE.

This particular coffee contains one of the newer varietals that have come from these producers, Mandela. This varietal was produced by initially selecting from a self pollinated Caturra varietal, containing the very best characteristics of its type. This was then crossed with a number of other varietals to give it other desirable properties such as resistance to rust. The best performing offspring were then selected to be grown and the result of this is an incredibly good example of Colombian coffee and one that we think will become a real favourite.
