The Coffee for the trouble makers
This coffee gives you the energy to fight for your dreams, work hard and change things. It also invites you to carry on with your projects and change the world, like the Colombians who dreamed with their independence from the Spanish Crown in the late years of the XVIII century.
From the North East of Colombia comes this coffee, in particular from the provinces of Santander and Norte de Santander. Both are located on the East of the Andes Chain Mountains that later crosses the border and ends in Venezuela.
This coffee is inspired in the Colombian history and the culture of the people living in these provinces.
In this region of Colombia started one of the movements in favor of our Independence in 1781 named “los comuneros”. The people that live there are famous for their strong character, tenacity, and their entrepreneurial skills.
