Las Margaritas Gesha
Rigoberto Herrera and the team at Café Granja La Esperanza are internationally renowned for their commitment to quality, innovation and sustainability. Overseeing the management of five neighbouring farms affords them the unique opportunity to tailor their production to suit the different micro-climates, varieties, and processing methods of these farms.
A history of experimentation has been a key part of the Herrera family story with three generations now responsible for bringing new varieties and ideas with them. In more recent times they have set industry trends, working beyond the typical washed processes and pioneering the production of a new range of cultivars. This modern exploration can be attributed to a period in the mid-2000’s where the team took to Panama to further their knowledge in processing and agronomy. After placing first in the Best of Panama awards they were clearly on to something and returned to Colombia with some of the first Geisha seeds to be commercially introduced there.
Not to let trendy varieties and barista competitors totally steal the moment, Café Granja La Esperanza are aware that sustainable production and environmental protection will be the real measure of lasting success. The team is constantly investing in the future of coffee, trialling new approaches and practices in agronomy. In addition to reducing water use, they are allocating areas to conservation and consciously looking after employees to preserve the ecological and social balance.
