    This year, our Turning Leaves comes from a small coffee farm in the Huehuetenango region of Guatemala. Finca Las Esperanza is currently under the administration and operation of the second and third generation Herrera Family with over 50 years of experience in growing coffee. The family has been pushing the quality of the coffee processing allowing their plants to bring forth their best qualities.

    Our importers work closely with the family, and every year these lots show up for class: They're juicy, complex, and downright delicious. This region’s coffees are known for their depth of flavor…caramelly and sweet, with high aromatics. With balanced, classic notes of milk chocolate and hazelnut, red currant and subtle spice, we found a perfect fit for this year’s Turning Leaves!
