La Esperanza is 88.11 hectares of breathtaking coffee land. Located in Cantón Las Cruces, Municipio de Chalchuapa in Santa Ana, it is cultivated with the Bourbon variety.
Coffee trees grow under the shade of Ingas and other native mountain trees such as eucalyptus, cedars, etc. La Esperanza begins at 1,000 msnm and goes all the way up to 1,600 msnm. It´s highest elevation is known as Tablon “La Cima”. At the top of the farm there are 9 hectares of wild forest which is left completely untouched. This forest serves as a home of various types of plants and animals, contributing with the biodiversity in the area. La Esperanza´s yearly rainfall is 2,933 mm.
We purchased the land in 2010 from it´s previous owner, Sonia Moran de Butter. La Esperanza means “HOPE”, a beautiful word that reminds us of the importance of the land, the environment and the people who work it. La Esperanza requires a lot of labor: 300 people during the harvest and 80 during the non harvest season. Lupe, the farm manager, has been part of our team for more than 8 years and he has welcomed the challenge of managing La Esperanza with a lot of “hope”. He has excellent people skills and an immeasurable love for the land, making him a great person to oversee “La Esperanza” and all the work that still has to be done.
The coffee was processed in our mill, Vivagua. We processed this coffee “honey”.
Thank you so much for tasting La Esperanza´s coffee. We are sure that it´s distinct characteristics will please your palate and your costumers´ as well.
