Trujillo is both a town and municipality in Valle de Cauca, on the western, Pacific-facing side of Colombia. It borders Cauca to the south, Tolima to the east, Risaralda and Quindio to the north, and encompasses elements of both the western and Central mountain ranges. The estate itself consists of around 2900 hectares under coffee, roughly 84,000 trees.

 

Due to the many microclimates, faces of the slopes, and changing weather patterns, there is often fresh coffee cropping throughout the year, though generally this is split across the main and mitaca (or ‘fly’) crops. Global warming has seen a significant change across Colombia, bringing challenges to some areas and opportunities to others. 

 

Tres Dragones is cultivated in Potosi farm from Granja La Esperanza, probably the most awarded coffee farm in the world. It is manual and rigorous picked at optimum ripeness and sugar levels then depulped without the use of water, 36 hours fermentation in cherry with controlled temperature.  This helps develop redder fruit flavours and sweetness. 

 

Coffee is left for about 48 hours in silo (temperature aprox of 35°C), it is then pass to solar dry for about 15 days.  Beans are then selected by the Café Granja La Esperanza team on physical appearance, before moving to sensory evaluation to achieve a minimum score of 86. It is then rested, and later prepared in sacks ready for exporting.
