FOUNDER & DIRECTOR
I grew up in a home in Colombia where violence was a daily fact. I took this violence to just be a part of life. On my journey through life, I have realised that this does not have to be the case. My aim with The Colombian Coffee Company is to give something back to my country by selling its best product.
After working in London for ethical fashion brand Bottletop.org, Eduardo founded The Colombian Coffee Company. He is in charge of business strategy and marketing. Currently at the research and development stage, Eduardo is liaising with coffee-growers and displaced communities in Colombia.
But you might see him very often pulling Espresso Shots in Borough Market or experimenting with new roasting profiles at our roastery in Flat Iron Square.

I am originally from Verona, Italy. I moved to London in 2016 and have been working as a Barista since then.
When 2 years ago a friend of mine introduced me to TCCC, I was delighted to join the team. It's well acknowledged that Italian people take pride in their coffee but since I became part of this social enterprise, I got to taste truly beautiful and fruital coffees which ended up with me loving each individual variety for their specific palette notes.
It comes without saying that I have been a huge fan of these single-origin Colombian coffees we have since day 1.
Growing up in a small village in the West Country, coming to London or at least a big city seemed inevitable. I studied Development Studies at SOAS University of London and I'm currently using my skills from different placements as well as my degree to help start a charity associated with the business. I'm the supervisor at the company and oversee the day-to-day operation of the Roastery and our stall at Borough Market.
Having spent most of my 3rd year at uni focusing on the politics of agricultural production worldwide, Eduardo's mission of promoting ethical trade for Coffee-growing communities seemed right up my street. I also love the hustle and bustle of Borough Market... There's never a dull day there!
