About this coffee -
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.
When Rigoberto and Luis took over the family operation in the late '90s, they took on the labor-intensive job of pivoting the farms to organic production. Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land that is now Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production.
They've done major renovations to the farms during the past 30 years of ownership and management, planting new, exotic varieties throughout the 52 producing hectares of Potosi Farm. At Potosi, they produce classic Colombian varieties like Caturra, Colombia, and Tabi. As well as beautiful exotics such as Geisha, Sidra, San Juan, Mandela, SL28 and more.
On top of industry-leading farm practices, they're also innovating the world of coffee processing, consistently exploring new techniques and processes to bring their coffees to a whole other level.
The Taste - We are getting loads of fruit on this one, typical for a natural, but somehow highlighted by the XO process - pineapple, peach, loads of rum that develops into a nice mellow mouth as it cools. complex & super creaming, this is an all day drinker!
