Nearly a century old, Café Granja La Esperanza has taken great strides under the brothers’ leadership and forward-thinking vision. In the last decade, the farm has diverged from the traditional “C” market coffees, to the more delicate and exquisite varieties coveted by the specialty coffee industry, some of them organic.

Rigoberto sent his head agronomist to a farm they rented in Boquete, Panama, where he learned about farming the Geisha variety. He then brought his knowledge back to to the farm, and they began cultivating what would be Colombia’s first lot of Geisha coffee.

In 2012, Cafe Granja La Esperanza achieved a “Triple Crown,” landing in 2nd, 3rd, and 7th place in the SCAA’s Coffees of the Year competition.

We look forward to working with Rigoberto and Luis Herrera for many years to come.
