LAESPERANZA- 1x1

La Esperanza, Guatemala

We're stoked on this lot from our friend Josue and his team in Guatemala. Grown on the La Esperanza test farm, this coffee evokes our favorite winter-warming flavors: caramel-coated apple, brandied cherry, and milk chocolate.

Moving Sustainability Forward

We've been visiting Josue Morales and Carolina Franco at their Antigua wet mill, Beneficio La Esperanza, since we first began sourcing green coffee. They not only connect people like us to producers across the country, but they use their test farm as a model for how organic, sustainable practices enhance coffee quality, yield, and ultimately, price.

Past and Future Perfect

Grown on the La Esperanza test farm in the Sacatepéquez region and processed at Beneficio La Esperanza, this coffee is the culmination of Morales' love for both experimental agriculture and traditional Antiguan processing. These Villa Sarchi variety coffee cherries are fully washed and then patio dried for 18 days.
