Potosi 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 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 an Estate blend, comprised of Caturra, Colombia varieties. It has been fully washed in a traditional ceramic tank, without water, for a range of 30 - 35 hours. Following this, the coffee has been dried in a mechanical silo until achieving 11% final moisture content.
