This is one of the most progressive and quality focused farms around the world. The view of the farm is impressive. It looks like a perfect variety garden.

This is one of a few different experimental single variety projects at Granja La Esperanza. Everything at this farm is focused towards quality improvement. Data for every imaginable detail is logged in order to find correlations between different variables and positive results.

The warehouse were coffee is stored is temperature and humidity controlled.

Each new variety projects takes about 10 years to be in full production. The first five years are only to determine if the project is viable (only a few acres are planted). The next five years is what it takes for the variety to be in full production.

Varieties are bred selectively to produce only pure offspring.
