A collection of exotic varietals are planted on Las Margaritas farm, one of five farms owned by Rigoberto and his brother Luis. A culmination of natural processing experimentation has paved the way for this microlot offering from Cafe Granja la Esperanza.
This natural pacamara lot has gone through a meticulous production process, with its characteristics enhanced and amplified through rigorously controlled processing.
This lot is hand-picked through strict selective picking, and left to ferment as whole cherry for 19-22 hours under controlled temperatures. The result is an aromatic, concentrated cup, with intense tropical qualities.
This pacamara comes from ‘Las Margaritas’ in Caicedonia which is known as G.L.E.’s varietal garden. Planted within it’s grounds are many different varietals throughout. Situated on a steep mountain slope, Las margaritas farm caters to mild temperatures between 16-24 Celsius with volcanic soil allowing the coffee plants on this farm to thrive. It is also home to some of the earliest plantings of geisha trees in Colombia.
