The story behind this coffee started sixty years ago when Eleodoro Villatoro supported himself by transporting, by foot, ripe coffee berries from farms in the neighborhood to the local process station. Later he would take over just one of these farms and still today it Eleodoro, who is now ninety years old, owns La Esperanza. The vast knowledge and experience he possesses is the foundation to the farm’s success, which includes the very prestigious contest cup of excellence.
We want more people to drink good coffee. We try to accomplish this through handicraft, openness and participaton. In this way, we are building a good coffee culture.
We are a speciality coffee roastery locally based in a cultural environment, in the heart of Gothenburg. We have an open production area where everyone is invited to observe the process behind the coffee. We buy our coffee from producers who care not only about the quality of the coffee, but also about the farm itself and their employees. When the coffee is delivered to our roastery, we roast it in our environmentally friendly roaster, where we have the best opportunities to do it justice. All for a better coffee culture.
