Owned by siblings, Rigoberto and Luis Eduardo Herrera, who come from a long standing coffee producing family. They are now third generation coffee producers, with their grandparents starting in coffee in 1945 right here at Potosi farm. After Juan Antonio Herrera and his wife Blanca Ligia Correa purchased the land, with existing Typica plants, they added three more cultivars, Red Bourbon, Yellow Bourbon and Caturra, and here, Cafe Granja La Esperanza began. Shortly after taking over, they purchased the land for Finca La Esperanza and expanded their organic coffee production.
