Guatemala La Esperanza Gold Label | Wholesale
We have had a coffee from the La Bolsa farm for several years as our flagship Guatemalan coffee. It has been so consistent for so long it is almost like a blend. This year the La Bolsa still tested very good but had a different flavor profile. Honestly, I just didn't like it as much and felt like I was going to have to change up the coffee profile. So I went to our samples and looked for one that would be similar to the La Bolsa we've had. That was an exercise worth completing because I ended up with this beauty. I believe this is the single best Guatemalan coffee I've ever tasted. I ordered more of this coffee than anyone I've ordered in the past because I have such confidence in it. It is a stunning cup of coffee and makes it so I don't miss our La Bolsa. I'm hoping you feel the same way.

Guatemala La Esperanza Coffee Production
Don Evelio Nicolás Hernández bought the farm in 1983, and named it for his desire for a new start in La Democracia. Over the years his family grew and he expanded the farm, buying adjacent lots. Access to the specialty coffee market has meant a great deal to Elevio and his family.
Chalum and fruit trees shade the plants, but the steep slope here does much to diffuse afternoon sunlight. In addition to coffee, the farm grows bananas and other fruits.
As a wholesale customer, you are ordering substantially more than the average coffee lover. This means that ensuring the correct grind level is even more important for you, but there's no need to worry. We're here to help! In addition to whole coffee beans, we currently offer 4 different coffee grind levels. Listed below with descriptions.
Whole Bean: Unground coffee for a home grinder.
Coarse: Think sugar in the raw, maybe more coarse
Recommended for Chemex Brewer, French Press, Cold Brew
Medium: Slightly coarser than table salt
Recommended for Flat bottom brewers, Kalitta, and Cloth filters
Fine: Slightly finer than table salt
Recommended for V60 pour overs, Typical cone filter coffee pots, Aeropress.
Extra Fine: Like powdered sugar
Recommended for Espresso or Moka pot.
If at all possible, we recommend grinding at home. We prefer Baratza coffee grinders and offer several of their models for sale. Click here to shop for one of their brewers.
We roast and ship all of our coffees daily. Unlike many roasters, they pick a day for each varietal. We roast in small enough batches to guarantee that every bag of coffee that you order is roasted after you order it, usually the day after you order it. We then ship it that day.
We believe that with this schedule your coffee will be the freshest possible every time.
Due to the hefty batch size of the majority of wholesale orders will be shipped out within 48 hours of when your order was placed. We hope as we grow, we'll still be able to meet these commitments, and we will notify you if anything related to this policy will be changed.
We aim to have a super simple shipping policy. Everything is shipped ground, because frankly Priority or FedEx 2 Day is pretty expensive for heavier shipments and in an ever cost conscious environment, we want you to pay ofr the quality of beans vs. the speed of shipping. That said, we have good negotiated rates and will quote and shipping service you want. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
