Exclusive Microlot La Esperanza X.O., Colombia
VARIETAL: San Juan
ALTITUDE: 1430 - 1760 masl
We're delighted to be roasting one of our favourite microlots again, this being the second year we've sourced the fruity, delicious and rare coffee.
Cafe Granja La Esperanza was established over 90 years ago and their five farms in Colombia are amongst the most progressive and experimental plantations in the world. They are now renowned worldwide for being one of the trailblazers in exotic micro-lot production.
This microlot has been processed using one of La Esperanza’s own unique process methods, which they have coined “X.O.” This method elongates fermentation and drying time, in turn imparting a fruity, sweet flavour profile on this coffee.
When roasting this coffee, we've designed a gentle and smooth profile to allow the beans to express their full potential of flavour, with an extended maillard phase to capture every last bit of sweetness. In the cup, this coffee has a gentle, creamy body, with a prolonged sweet aftertaste that leaves you wanting more.
Pre-orders for this coffee will be dispatched on the day after their specified roast date. Please note that any orders including pre-orders will be held in full to send as one parcel.Please note discounts do not apply to exclusive microlots.
