Colombia Granja La Esperanza Bourbon
Rigoberto and Luis Herrera are the fourth-generation farmers behind world-renowned Granja La Esperanza. Their pristine processing of rare varietals has won over fans that includes too many expert baristas to count. But in this coffee, they’ve returned to the standard-bearer cultivar, Bourbon. The French discovered this mutation of Arabica, which eventually spread across South and Central America to become the representative coffee of the Americas. Like so many heirlooms, a cup of Bourbon expertly washed is hard to come by. That’s why this one’s special: a modern translation of an original coffee masterpiece.
