Finca La Esperanza was purchased by the Pacas family in 2010. The farm has been divided into 18 different tablones (plots) each with different growing conditions and suited to different varieties. The highest one, called “La Cima” (The Top), is mostly planted with Bourbon.
The Pacas family are very strict with farm management and environmental conservation. No herbicides are used on the new plots and only manual labour used to remove weeds. All the cascara (dried coffee cherry skins) are composted and returned to the land. This rare Orange Bourbon is believed to be the result of a natural crossing between Red and Yellow Bourbon. It tastes delicious!
