La Esperanza Potosi Anaerobic process is grown on the Potosi farm in the department of Valle del Cauca. We have a very limited supply of this amazing washed coffee grown at 15oo meters.
This coffee is selectively picked, only the ripest, cherries are selected.
The brix levels on the cherries are measure in order to put the most juicy cherries in the tank. Once set in the tanks, the lid is sealed to avoid exposure to oxygen and are left for 168 hours to ferment in its own environment.
After fermentation the cherries are left in a mechanical drier for 48 hours and then finished on the patio in the sun.
Brothers Luis and Rigoberto Herrera are the proprietors of a small group of farms in central Colombia: Cerro Azul, Las Margaritas, La Esperanza, Potosí, and Hawaii. Potosí was the family’s first finca, established in 1930 when Israel Correa and Carmen Rosa Vega, the Herrera’s grandmother, emigrated from the department of Antioquia.
