New Release | La Esperanza Special, Guatemala

La Esperanza Special is our first release from Guatemala for the season and is sure to be a crowd-favourite for filter coffee fans.

Seven Seeds has worked with the Villatoro family for the last ten years. Over that time, we have had the absolute pleasure of purchasing from three of their farms and learning about and enjoying each farm's unique profiles. Of these farms, Finca La Esperanza lots have always had a stunning amount of clarity and balance, with gorgeous acidity that is vibrant but not overwhelming. This year's La Esperanza Special has mellow stone fruit tones upfront, with an approachable, delightful finish.

Earlier this year, Seven Seeds co-owner Mark flew into Huehuetenango, marking our first visit to Guatemala since 2018. Mark spent the time with Aurelio Villatoro and his family, breaking bread, catching up and charting a course for the year ahead. Relationships like this are the foundation of the sourcing strategy here at Seven Seeds, and they have blessed us with the perfect coffee to celebrate ten years of mateship.
