At the forefront of innovation sits producer Rigoberto Herrera of Cafe Granja la Esperanza the producer of this Geisha. ‘Cerro Azul’ is the most famous of the five farms owned by Rigoberto and his brother Luis. They run a family business as third generation coffee producers, with Granja La Esperanza established almost a century ago by their grandparents. This continuation over the years to push boundaries of varietals and experimental processing has produced year after year of competition winning cup profiles.

This rare Geisha was grown on an elevated foothill of the Colombian Western mountain range. Superb climates and rich volcanic soils contribute to the depth and complexity of this exotic varietal, and contribute to an elegant cup profile. Due to Cerro Azul’s proximity to the equator and location, bushes are multi-flowering and the cherries they produce reach optimum levels of sugar.

Cerro Azul terroir has elevations between 1500-2000m, catering to temperatures between 15-21 degrees. Volcanic soil allow the coffee plants on this farm to thrive, and this farm is constantly producing geisha lots throughout the year. Sustainable practises are intrinsic to Granja La Espranza’s business philosophy and the hyper-productivity of this farm is proof of this.
