Produced at Beneficio La Esperanza from trees of the Bourbon, Caturra and Caturai varieties of Arabica and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Proyecto Aurora is a special project of the employees of Beneficio La Esperanza on the parcels they own in Ciudad Vieja and Alotenango. Coffee is picked only on Sunday, as this is the only day of the week they are not occupied picking coffee on other parcels. El Gran Cafe is a coffee shop located in the heart of Antigua, Guatemala whose mission is to roast and serve organic-certified coffees produced at its own Finca La Esperanza and Finca El Pintado just outside of town. Featured in El Gran Cafe’s lineup are also coffees from friends and neighbors in the region, along with award-winning and exceptional coffees from other regions of Guatemala.
