La Esperanza is one of the first coffees to arrive from our latest competition in Huila. José Vitelio Martínez has three small farms in Huila: La Vega, El Regalo and La Esperanza. The farms are all close together and the harvest from each one is processed at the La Esperanza micro-mill. José has been farming coffee since he can remember and now has children and grandchildren to help him. His daughter Flor Mireya Martínez runs the micro-mill and processing while José works the coffee and the shade trees. Flor Mireya encouraged her father to enter our competition five years ago and they were both stoked their coffee was selected. José also plays the guitar in a traditional Latin American band. They are well known in this part of Huila and play at birthday parties, serenatas and weddings
