Origin Story

Café Granja La Esperanza

Cerro Azul Enano is an ongoing exclusive offering at Equator from Cerro Azul, a coffee farm owned and operated by our quality-obsessed friends at Granja La Esperanza. The farm was planted exclusively with the rare and celebrated botanical variety known as Gesha (or Geisha), or so they thought. As the coffee trees began to mature, it became evident that a small number of trees did not look like Gesha. The compact size of the trees and the dense foliage were distinctly different than the taller, comparatively sparse Gesha bushes. No one is sure what the true identity of this dwarf variety is. As such, the plants were dubbed Enano, which means dwarf in Spanish.

Because it was not thought to be of the Gesha variety, Granja La Esperanza tagged the bushes and began processing the Enano cherry separately. When we tasted this coffee in Colombia several years ago, we offered to purchase the entire production of this Gesha-like coffee and have been doing so ever since. Whatever the actual variety, the floral tones are certainly reminiscent of the Gesha type.

Why We Love This Coffee

Our understanding of this coffee continues to evolve. Originally, we thought Enano might just be a great tasting natural hybrid of Arabica species coffee, the shrub looked a little like the Catuaí variety. Based on the taste of this coffee, we now believe that it is a spontaneous dwarf mutation of Gesha. On Finca Sophia, our own farm in Panama, we are also seeing dwarf plants intermingled on the farm. As the plants continue to naturalize on Cerro Azul, the Gesha-like characteristics seem to become more intense. We are lucky enough to receive two harvests each year of Enano. Since coffee is an agricultural product we expect variations in flavor from season-to-season.
