FINCA LA ESPERANZA
Notes: Dark Cherry, Red Wine, Brazil Nut
Farmer: Beatriz Giraldo
Finca La Esperanza was bought by Angel brothers in 1972 and was run by them for the next 30 years.
Following the passing of Gilberto Angel in 2002, the farm administration passed on to Beatriz Giraldo, his wife. This farm provides for the livelihoods of her son and daughter as well as herself. Together they manage the farm focusing on producing higher quality by implementing alternative fermentation processes to achieve a more complex flavor in the cup. This lot has an extra dry fermentation phase where the washed and sorted cherries are placed in sealed bags for a period of time before pulping and washing.
