La Esperanza, Gesha (Honey)
Pineapple, lemon & lime complexity with a sweet nougat aftertaste.
Finca La Esperanza is located in the Pijao, Quindio only 20km away from Armenia. It’s produced by Jairo Ivan Lopez who follows the strictest of harvesting and processing practices. This delicious micro-lot is Jairo’s second Gesha release, a now-famous varietal first discovered in Abyssinia, Ethiopia. This year’s harvest is honey processed and the results are just as sublime as the first, but this year showing a little more acidity and complexity. Expect pineapple, lemon and lime complexity with a sweet nougat aftertaste.

Geisha vs Gesha
While there is no definitive proof that the variety is Gesha or Geisha, we’ve made a move to Gesha as it is a more factual alignment to the etymology of the word. Gesha is the small town in south-western Ethiopia where the variety is thought to have originated.
