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. The coffee is transported to a mill in San Miguel where each batch is processed individually under strict processing protocols to ensure the quality of the beans are maintained. La Esperanza is a fairly large farm, and altitude ranges from 1000 to 1350 meters above sea level.
All coffee orders ship the day after your selected roast day. To ensure your purchase is processed on time, orders must be placed by 2pm on your selected roast day. Orders placed after 2pm on a roast day may not be processed until the following roast day.
