CERRO AZUL - GESHA
ST. ALi SPECIAL RELEASE

Gesha coffee from Cerro Azul is amongst the best in the world and regularly appears in some of the most coveted competitions.


The Granja La Esperanza farm is amongst the most progressive and experimental plantations in the world, positioned on an elevated spot on the crest of the Cordillera Occidental range facing out to the Pacific Ocean. The warm breezes coming up from the ocean are measured by a weather station that collects a vast array of data and informs the farm manager Don Rigoberto Herrera Correa how to optimise each plant.


Up to 60% of the Gesha seedlings never make it to ground, ensuring only the healthiest genetic stock is used. Once planted, they are regularly observed for both quality and yield, removing any that are under producing or producing inferior coffee.

Only the most senior pickers can pick the crop, they must undergo six months of training and testing before they are even allowed to touch the trees. The quality control practices at Granja La Esperanza are based on three pillars; genetic material of the variety, the terrior, and human talent. They have strict quality control procedures in place to ensure consistently excellent cup quality.


This is the sixth year we've been lucky enough to secure this coffee and we're constantly blown away by the results of this producer.
