Diana Sofia Jimenez LA ESPERANZA FIELD BLEND - WASHED Colombia

We work very hard to offer single variety separations. But, in this case, the harvest was too small to separate, and we were intrigued by the very unique blend of some of our favorite varieties. In the cup we find a complete profile of rose, cooked berries, and clementine.


Caturra, Gesha, Chiroso


Timaná, Huila


1,800 masl


August, 2023


Hand-picked at peak ripeness. Floated to further remove defects. De-pulped. Dry fermented for 24 hours. Washed. Dried on raised beds for 16 days.


We work extensively in and around southern Huila, so it is rather exciting for us to come across new producers with exceptional coffee. We haven't had the opportunity to visit Diana's farm or learn much about her, but we look forward to doing so next time we are in Huila!


Caturra is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety. It was discovered on a plantation in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil sometime between 1915 and 1918. Today, it is one of the most economically important coffees in Central America, to the extent that it is often used as a benchmark against which new cultivars are tested. In Colombia, Caturra was thought to represent nearly half of the country’s production before a government-sponsored program beginning in 2008 incentivized renovation of over three billion coffee trees with the leaf rust resistant Castillo variety (which has Caturra parentage).


Gesha was originally collected from coffee forests of Ethiopia in the 1930's. From there, it was sent to the Lyamungo Research Station in Tanzania, and then brought to Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (CATIE) in Central America in the 1953, where it was logged as accession T2722. It was distributed throughout Panama via CATIE in the 1960’s after its tolerance to coffee leaf rust was recognized. However, it was not widely planted because the plant's branches were brittle and not favored by farmers. Gesha came to prominence in 2005, when the Peterson family of Boquete, Panama, entered it into the Best of Panama competition and auction. It received exceptionally high marks and broke the then-record for green coffee auction prices, selling for over $20 per pound. Since then, the variety has become a resounding favorite of brewing and roasting competition winners and coffee enthusiasts alike.


Chiroso is a new variety being grown primarily in the region of Antioquia, Colombia. We only started hearing about its cultivation a couple of years ago, but because of its cup quality potential, it is beginning to spread. The variety has been genetically identified as an Ethiopian Landrace, but unfortunately, we cannot get any more specific than that at this time.

The cost of getting a coffee from cherry to beverage varies enormously depending on its place of origin and the location of its consumption. The inclusion of price transparency is a starting point to inform broader conversation around the true costs of production and the sustainability of specialty coffee as a whole.
