La Esperanza Estate is grown on the Potosí farm by José Alberto Sánchez Suárez at an elevation 1400 -2000 meters. This is a fully washed coffee consisting of cherries that have been picked at the peak of ripeness.
Potosí and La Esperanza farms are cultivated with a blend of traditional varieties such as Typica, Caturra, Selected Colombia and Castillo, managed under concepts and standards of sustainable agriculture, with the Rainforest Alliance certification. This means cultivation work as fertilization, weeds control and phytosanitary management, are carried out preserving the environments and taking care of people’s health. 20% of the farm is reserved as natural forest habitat.
Valle del Cauca is bordered by the neighboring departments of Risaralda and Quindío in the north, Tolima and Chocó to the west and Cauca to the south. The region as a whole resides within the Cauca river valley, surrounded by dense jungle forests and a large portion of the Andean mountain range to the west which shields the valley from Pacific winds and dense, humid jungles on the other side of its peaks. Of the surrounding areas, the Cauca River valley is considered the most fertile in this part of the country.
