Every so often there are coffees that possess the markers of the highest quality, are astoundingly unique, and woefully rare. La Esperanza is unquestionably that coffee, and has earned its place as our first Limited Edition offering of the year.
La Esperanza is operated by the acclaimed Pacas Family in the hills of Santa Ana. The farm has been carefully divided into 18 microlots–or tablones–each with their own characteristics and microclimates. Like all Pacas coffees, their soil conversation and optimization of natural volcanic conditions have been the key to exquisite coffee production.
We were extremely fortunate to secure a microlot of natural process Ethiopian Heirloom. The term “heirloom” refers to a category of Ethiopian varietals known for their intense flowery notes. Being cultivated in El Salvador with the Pacas's expertise just reflects the compounding factors that make this coffee such an unforgettable experience.
In the cup, expect beautifully tropical aromatics with tasting notes of citrus, rosewater, and a superclean finish. Available in extremely limited quantities and only online–so buy fast, and savour slow!
