La Esperanza borders El Boqueron National Park, a majestic natural forest that is home to a multitude of wildlife, and a main feature of San Salvador’s volcano crater. After the roya crisis, most farmers in the region let the original Bourbon and Pacas cultivars die off, replanting with rust-resistant varieties that unfortunately also produce an inferior cup. However, La Esperanza has kept most of its original tree populations, which farm managers have kept productive and healthy by implementing integrated farming practices. The farm is broken into several plots, most with intermixing of Arabigo (Typica) and Bourbon. La Esperanza benefits from being able to hire the same group of pickers each harvest, who know the farm well, and know which cherries are ripe enough to pick. This coffee was processed by Swiss Water Decaf in Vancouver, BC, where they employ a chemical free water decaffeination process that retains much of the original coffee character.
