Villa Loyola - Colombia
An aroma of sugar cane, syrupy body and juicy acidity. This cup has a pleasant maple syrup flavor, marmalade sweetness, and tones of red wine and sugar cane that linger in the finish.
Finca Villa Loyola has been a Direct Trade partner with us since 2011. When we were first introduced to this farm, it was a clear winning combination with their high elevation and caturra variety. The farm is operated by the local church, and has become a pride of the community. Over the last few years, Farm Manager Jose Luis Almeida has worked hand in hand with us to improve picking and processing of the coffee, further improving its quality. In 2008, Finca Villa Loyola's commitment to quality was rewarded when they received 1st place in the Colombia Cup of Excellence Competition.
In 2012 leadership of Villa Loyola fell to Padre José Alejandro Aguilar Posada. With a worldly education received in Colombia, Brazil, Congo, and the United States, Padre Joe has extensive knowledge and experience in agro-ecology, sustainability, rural development, regional sustainability, and eco-theology. Throughout his life and travels he has been deeply involved in sustainable agricultural development and rural economics. His unique background is perfectly suited for the work at Villa Loyola. With his guidance, Villa Loyola will continue to advance its sustainable practices while improving the lives of the workers and surrounding community.
This video features Padre Gerard Arango Puerto, who passed away in 2012. The Padre was a wonderful man who cared deeply for the people of Nariño and the family that is Finca Villa Loyola. We truly enjoyed working with the Padre to bring you their coffee and he will certainly be missed.
Las Margaritas Honey - Colombia
Las Margaritas Honey:
An elegant floral aroma with hints of candied almonds and honey, creamy body, and a citric acidity. Notes of smooth chocolate and orange zest are complimented by a complex buckwheat honey sweetness and a finish of dried dates.
This is a beautiful example of honey or pulped natural processed coffee. Coffee that goes through this process has the skin of the cherry removed and is then carefully dried on patios with the fruity mucilage still on the bean. This imparts several flavor characteristics, including a more complex acidity and fuller, creamier body.
This coffee is a red bourbon micro-lot that is grown near gesha trees in the Las Margaritas lot at Cafe Granja La Esperanza. It is one of several coffees we are carrying from producers Rigoberto and Luis Herrera this year.
Hunapu - Guatemala
A welcoming aroma of toffee with an undertone of cocoa, finishing with a soft brown sugar body. This coffee offers a refreshing melon and crisp peach acidity.
Our Hunapu comes from a highland valley near the colonial city of Antigua, one of Guatemala's premier tourist attractions due to its heritage and scenery. Antigua is situated between three impressive volcanoes, Agua, Acatenango, and Fuego. The unique dry climate, magnificent landscape, and excellent volcanic soil provide optimal conditions to produce some of the best coffees in the world.
Hunapu is a name established by Beneficio Bella Vista for a group of small producers that got together to separate their Bourbon varietal cherries and offer one of the best Antigua coffees available. The name Hunapu derived from the natives name for the Agua volcano.
The Hunapu Bourbon is the result of the hard work to separate 100% Bourbon varietal fully ripe cherries and deliver them to Beneficio Bella Vista, where the traditional washed process is used during the wet stage and fully sun-dried to bring out the best of the Antigua Bourbon profile.
Sihereni - Papua New Guinea
A savory, tea-like aroma, buttery with bright acidity. Complex notes of ginger and roasted malt are lightened with a cantaloupe sweetness and finishes with tones of black tea and bright grapefruit.
This distinctive coffee comes from the Sihereni Plantation in Goroko, Papua New Guinea. Instead of going through the traditional wet-hull processing method like most Indonesian coffees, this coffee is washed resulting a cleaner and brighter cup.
Papua New Guinea native, David Oromari purchased the Sihereni Plantation in 2000 which was in a terrible state of disrepair. Using local labor and his knowledge from previous years in the coffee industry, Mr. Oromari brought Sihereni back from the brink. Using innovative methods of weed control, drainage, and shading, his trees now produce some of the highest quality coffee in the area and has reached Rainforest Alliance Certification. He has long-term goals of growing the plantation and raising the quality of coffee produced by his neighbors to create a sustainable and thriving coffee producing community.
