We are delighted to offer these rare and exclusive nano lots from the best producer in the business.
Cafe Granja La Esperanza is a producer we have worked with since day one here at SLVRSKIN.
These coffees are from CGLE’s competition selection, and showcase the absolute pinnacle of coffee quality, standards and processing.
There are hybrid varietals exclusive to their respective farms, and also processing methods devised and perfected by CGLE.
Multi award, multi competition winning CGLE is recognised worldwide as the best there is.
With a reputation for producing competition winning coffees, processes are matched with varieties to produce unique flavour profiles.
Five farms now make up the Café Granja La Esperanza: Cerro Azul, Las Margaritas, La Esperanza, Potosi and Hawaii.
Near to the La Esperanza farm in Trujillo lies Cerro Azul. With nearly 34,000 trees producing 7 lots of coffee in the Cafe Granja line up, this farm is notorious for the Geisha it produces. High altitudes, 1500mm rainfall and 85-90% humidity make for a unique microclimate.
17 hectares of that are the Geisha trees that produce the cherries for this coffee.
Cherries are picked and dry fermented whole before being depulped without water, and then wet fermented for 35 hours giving as total fermentation time of between 54 and 57 hours.
Beans are then mechanically dried between 35°C and 45°C until they reach the target 10.5% moisture.
Cup Notes: Candyfloss, grapefruit, jasmine, soft melon & a huge vanilla note.
