La Esperanza farm is situated in the Trujillo municipality and is the second largest of the 5 farms at 34.3 hectares cropping. This equates to just over 96,500 trees. This coffee contains one of the newer varietals that have come from these producers, Mandela. This is a self-pollinated selection from Caturra x Caturra, choosing a bean that gave the best characteristics. This was then crossed with the Timor Hybrid in order to provide some resistance to rust, before being crossed again with Ethiopian landrace varietals such as Sudan Rume, Daleco, and Villa Sarchi. The offspring from those were then selected for the best performing and the varietal stabilized, with the resultant trees exhibiting both bronze and green tips.
