This Mandela varietal from Granja La Esperanza's Las Margaritas farm has floral aroma similar to a washed Ethiopian, bright lime acidity and creamy mouthfeel with notes of Guava and vanilla.

After taking over the family farm, dating back to the 1930s, Rigoberto and Luis decided to take their coffee in a new direction when they began growing organic coffee in the 90's. They soon acquired another farm, La Esperanza to keep up with organic production and in 2007 Rigoberto leased a farm in Panama called La Carleida. Here he won first prize for "Best Coffee in Panama" for a Geisha varietal, the seeds of which were brought back to Colombia starting a new era for coffee at Cafe Granja La Esperanza. Five farms now make up the Estate; Potosi, La Esperanza, Hawaii, Cerro Azul and Las Margaritas growing competition winning coffees where varietals are matched with processes to create unique flavour profiles.

This particular coffee comes from Las Margaritas farm known as their 'garden of varieties' due to the rare selection of competition winning coffees and unusual varieties grown here.

The Mandela Varietal

The Mandela varietal is a self pollinated selection from Caturra x Caturra, choosing a bean that gave the best characteristics. This was then crossed with Timor Hybrid to provide some disease resistance to rust then again with Ethiopian landrace varietals such as Sudan Rume, Daleco and Villa Sarchi. The offspring from those were then selected for the best performing and the varietal stabilised, with the resultant trees exhibiting both bronze and green tips.
