Single origin from Andrés Trujillo of Finca La Esperanza, Colombia

With the benefit of two harvests a year Colombia often graces us with the opportunity to keep familiar relationships available on a more regular basis. Case in point, our previous Colombian coffees from Cedro Alto proving so popular we have been lucky to add to that selection with this unique natural lot from Tolima’s forward-thinking Finca La Esperanza.

The Details

Finca La Esperanza is overseen by Andrés Trujillo, a pioneering producer seeking to re-think Colombian processing norms and mitigate the financial risks of coffee production. In a country where natural processed coffee is seen as an exciting rarity, Andrés has already dedicated 100% of his farm's output to shade-dried natural lots. He has also transitioned to organic certification as a calculated move to appeal to different sectors of the coffee industry and ensure he has multiple opportunities for selling his coffee.
Seemingly unsatisfied with just the basic organic standards he has embraced agroforestry principles, planting native trees amongst his Caturra, Typica and Colombia coffee varieties. This awareness of the environment’s long-term impact on productivity and quality is evident with a complex and deep array of tropical flavours on display. 

Partnering with Cedro Alto as the Colombian exporter provides a unique degree of financial transparency, illustrating the costs of production at various stages of the supply chain whilst also highlighting the value and security responsible partners can provide farmers as an alternative to the volatile open commodity market.
