We take a team of our baristas to visit this farm each year because we are so impressed with the Villatoro family’s coffee production. They have built a wet mill, a road that connects the rural community to the nearest paved road, and every roof in the family village of Hoja Blanca doubles as a drying patio. We are so excited to see this farm experiment with natural process coffee. Having partnered with them for over six years, it is a delight to watch the Villatoro family continually improve their cup quality and farming methods. Learn more about Finca La Esperanza here.
