    Finca La Esperanza is located on a mountain range in Caicedonia, Valle del Cauca. The farm sits at an altitude of 1430 - 1760 MASL and has

    strict sustainable agricultural practices.

    The Producer

    Café Granja La Esperanza was established over 90 years ago with a small state farm in Potosi, Colombia. The agronomists behind Granja La Esperanza purchased the farm and dedicated its plantation to processing high quality organically certified coffee. They have spent the last decade meticulously honing their craft and since shifted from traditional 'C' market coffees to more delicate and exotic varietals coveted by the specialty coffee industry. They now manage three other farms in Colombia; Finca Las Margaritas, Finca La Esperanza and Finca Cerro Azul. The farms are located in Valle del Cauca and the Trujillo regions of south-western Colombia.’  

    The Farming Practices

    The Granja La Esperanza farms are amongst the most progressive and experimental plantations in the world. Cultivated varietals are selected for cup
    attributes over disease resistance, and pickers are paid by the day as opposed to by weight, encouraging harvest of only the ripest cherries. The quality
    control practices at Granja La Esperanza are based on three pillars; genetic material of the variety, the terrior, and human talent. They have strict
    quality control procedures, 95 checkpoints to be exact, in place to ensure consistently excellent cup quality. This comprehensive investment of time,
    energy and human resources can only come about through total dedication, of which the Granja La Esperanza team is 100% committed. The
    Granja La Esperanza philosophy combines the quality of the cup, quality of the environment, and quality of life for its workers and the greater
    community.
