Esperanza Café culture

Since 2012, we have directly sourced our coffees from origin, and we roast them with love.

GREEN COFFEE


We source all our coffees from small producers cooperatives through Roaster United, a unique co-importing initiative. We are a founder member of Roasters United, a 13 specialty coffee roasters collective in Europe. We visit our producers partners on the ground in order to share experiences and build up long term relationships toward cup quality and community enpowerment. Our deep commitment to origin, and our uderstanding of the value chain allow us to source the best available lots. Transparency is a key component in our adventure. The concept of Direct-Trade is often misused in the specialty coffee industry and it is very important for us to guarantee transparency. Here is the link to our most recent transparency report that follows the standards designed by The Pledge.

COFFEE ROASTING


We evaluate every lot we receive with a high level of precision in order to define a specific roast profile for them. The recipe is driven by the sensorial attributes of a given coffee and the brewing method the coffee will be designed for. Every batch is cupped before we deliver it to our clients. Our coffees are roasted with love and passion everyweek in our roasting operations and we commit to high quality and freshness.

THE CUP OF COFFEE


We are building partnership with our clients to make sure the deep work from farm to cup translates into a great taste experience for the final tatser. Our clients can choose their coffee during a initial tasting in optimal conditions. Once the coffee is selected, we set up a continued training agenda to ensure that the cup quality will be stable and outstanding weeks after weeks.  We also advise our partners about equipments selection.
