Aquiares Hacienda La Esperanza

La Esperanza is a century-old home which has served the Hacienda as the house where its owners stay and enjoy their farm surrounded by unprecedented natural beauty. Its wooden floors derive from hardwoods that would not be possible to harvest in our modern times; as you walk through the house and listen to those floors creek, just remember that they are more than one-hundred years old.

High on the slopes of the Turrialba Volcano lies Aquiares; founded in 1890, it is one of the oldest and best cared for coffee estates of Costa Rica.

Aquiares coffee is a reflection of the love that the locals feel for their home, their work and this delectable beverage. Coffee company and coffee community become one in Aquiares, where a  unique symbiotic relationship is born.

We export our coffee worldwide and produce over 15 types of distinctively tasting coffees, each with a particular story, process, origin and varietal. Education is a big part of specialty coffee, not only to discuss different taste profiles, but also to understand just howmuch effort goes into your daily cup of coffee.


La Esperanza is a century-old home which has 5 rooms: Sloth, Jaguar, Toucan, Macaw & Coyote, some with share or private bathroom, its wooden floors derive from hardwoods that would not be possible to harvest in our modern times; as you walk through the house and listen to those floors creek.
