The syrupy tangerine acidity and structured sugar cane sweetness are indicative of a classic Huehue coffee.

Founded by Heleodoro de Jesús Villatoro López, Finca La Esperanza has been growing amazing coffees since 1956. The farm is now three generations deep, and currently under the care of his grandchild, Aurelio Villatoro. The family’s meticulous attention to every detail is routinely recognized in the Cup of Excellence. Thoughtfully choosing to start their farm in La Libertad was one of the first and best choices made. The mountainous microclimate achieves the perfect balance of hot days, cool nights and a heavy dose of rain during Huehuetenango's wet season. La Esperanza is situated on a steep slope at the head of a natural spring. It not only provides a beautiful backdrop but supplies exceptionally pure water used in their coffee processing. Verve has been purchasing this coffee for 6 years.
My son introduced me to Verve coffee and it quickly became my favorite!
Not my favorite
I can’t believe I’m rating a Verve coffee only 3 stars, but I found this variety to be lacking in aroma and just “okay” in flavor. While some of Verve’s Latin American coffees are truly epic, this one is not in that league to be perfectly honest.
It's all good, Todd! Thank you so much for the honest feedback. We truly appreciate it. If you need any brew tips, please reach out to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The lightness and smoothness is excellent. I would most definitely purchase this coffee again.
Latin and Average
I think this one was a bit over roasted, I had a hard time tasting the roasters noted flavors. It was drinkable and I ended up making a blend out of it.
We're sorry to hear that it wasn't what you expected, Adam. Let us know if you need any brew tips! We'd be happy to share so the next cup hits the tasting notes.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
