This story goes back over 50 years, to when Don Eleodoro would travel 4 days by foot to buy coffee cherry from a farm, and then walk 5 days back to sell the coffee to a mill.
Once he realised it was a viable business, he bought Finca La Esperanza in 1953. Aurelio, one of Eleodoro’s sons, grew up helping his father on the farm and upon Don Eleodoro’s recent passing, has taken over management.
Aurelio has worked hard and dedicated his time to producing high quality coffee which has earned him many national and international awards. His farm has competed in the Cup of Excellence four times and he has been awarded by Illy the titles of Best Farmer in Guatemala and Best Farmer in Huehuetenango.
