Mario, a Colombian guy who lived in Hong Kong, once loved the mainstream watered down milky coffee. Upon returning to his country, a colleague invites him to a coffee shop inside a bookstore where he tries, for the first time, a Specialty Coffee from Planadas Tolima. With just the first sip, his life is never the same. He realizes that this is his first taste of real coffee.
One day after work he meets with his colleague, Angela, to catch up. They order two cups of coffee and she says it is the first time she is going to have a Specialty Coffee. Once she senses the aroma, the memory when she was a kid came to her, the smell of her dad’s freshly brewed coffee that woke her up every morning to get ready and go to school. Since that day, both started sharing their passion for the bean and the dream to share these experiences with the rest of the world.
Both started It Is Colombian Trading Company Limited with the purpose to promote Colombian coffee farmers, helping them change your life, and make their mark in the world by showcasing their incredible products.
