Finca La Esperanza is located in Gigante, Huila, Colombia and run by the 33 years old Deiby Sanchez. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,700 m.a.s.l. and consists of 2.5 hectares in coffee, 100% planted in Caturra. Deiby is like a mad scientist who probably experiments too much, but so far the results have been very promising! This lot is a compilation of the best of his various experiments throughout the harvest and the idea is to replicate those lots going forward, using the same recipe. Once the coffee is washed, it is then taken to slow-dry anywhere from 20-40 days in a parabolic dryer, he built himself of bamboo and resembles a natural version of the famous Centre Pompidou in Paris. This is our 2nd year working with Deiby and is one of our contracted preferred producers that we hope to continue working with for many years. He and his brothers inherited the 6Ha farm from his father 5 years ago. His brothers are not interested in the coffee, so with the increased income from his high quality coffee he hopes to be able to buy his brothers’ shares in the next years.
