Cafe Granja La Esperanza – Las Margaritas Red Bourbon

Cupping notes

Oozing gentle fruit notes of Peach, apricot and nectarine, with honey syrup body and sugar cane sweetness, rhubarb flavourings, with grapefruit and vanilla notes, hints of cherry and caramelised raspberry linger. It’s cherry aftertaste and aroma make it one of our favourite coffees every year.

Description

The Red Bourbon varietal has a strong following, and non more than this one from the Las Margaritas farm from Cafe Granja La Esperanza. It’s complex fruity nature makes it such an excuisite coffee to cup, that one can go back to it multiple times and find something new to love each and every time

Café Granja La Esperanza represents the heart of the Colombian Coffee Culture. The original farm “Potosí” was acquired by Israel Correa and Carmen Rosa Vega (grandmother) in 1930 – but has grown over the years to encompass 5 farms: Potosi, Las Margaritas, Cerro Azul, La Esperanza and Buenos Aires. In the year 2007 Don Rigo had the chance to lease and manage a coffee farm in the region of Boquete in Panama, called “La Carleida”, and a year later obtained the first place in the “Best of Panama”, awards. At this point he decided to bring some of the Geisha seeds to Colombia, starting a new era in the history of Granja La Esperanza
