La Esperanza ColombiaDetour Coffee Roasters
Both complex and balanced with layered notes of cantaloupe, red berries and sweet lime, this coffee comes to us from producer Luis Velasco’s family farm La Esperanza, located in the Pitalito municipality in Huila, Colombia. Before taking over full control and management of the family farm, Luis had been involved in coffee since he was a small child, working with his father to learn all aspects of growing high-quality coffee. He continues his passion and growth everyday by working hand-in-hand with Caravela’s agronomists to educate himself and other producers in the area on how he can make farm-level improvements to processes and is focused now on learning about cupping to learn how to cup, evaluate and understand the good and bad characteristics of his coffee.
