We are a for-profit company (because there is too much paperwork to become a non-profit) and all profit from the sale of our coffees' goes to support a mobile medial unit which serves Guatemalan pickers and their families with dental and medical services. Esperanza Coffee Company was formed in 2016 by Richard Buehl. He is a retired Caterpillar Inc. employee who spent 25 of his 36 years with the company traveling Latin America, Central America, and South America. "I have seen the impact that coffee has on the Latin people. Coffee is the second largest traded commodity in the world, second only to oil, and it is the life blood of Latin America. This is my opportunity to give back for all the kindness shown to me durning my travels."
