A yearly favorite and direct-relationship coffee, this new La Esperanza is everything we hoped for—and more! We love the chocolatey aroma and light-bodied sweetness, and the cantaloupe notes add a tangy, sparkling complexity.
We take a group of our baristas to visit this farm each year because we are so impressed with the Villatoro family’s coffee production. They have built a wet mill, a road that connects the rural community to the nearest paved road, and every roof in the family village of Hoja Blanca doubles as a drying patio. notes of Milk Chocolate, Hazelnut, and Cantaloupe.
"Light, a bit too bright for me, but I think those who love lighter roasts will dig it!"
"Didn't know what to expect with cantaloupe... But nice n smooth "
"Totally agree with all the reviews. Despite grinding it too coarse for my french press, this was quite a tasty coffee. Light-bodied but sweet, chocolatey, nutty and a little fruity with a crisp, clean finish. Should probably order a bag."
"Fanastic coffee, nice bright flavor, clean after taste. Seattle coffee works hit a home run with this coffee! Highly Recommended"
"Brewed in french press, drank black. Medium acidity, fairly bright, with fruit notes. Good coffee overall, could be good with a little cream."
"This blend produced a solid cup of coffee. There was nothing exceptional, but it was solid and I enjoyed it. "
"Very good coffee. Not quite sure what flavors it hit on, but it was just a great coffee."
