Our Team.

Eduardo Florez

Director

"

I grew up in a home in Colombia where violence was a daily fact. I took this violence and poverty 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 an ethical fashion brand, Bottletop, 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. 

 

He is also in charge of roasting, cupping and selecting the amazing coffee varietals we offer.

"

I have lived and worked in Colombia and seen first-hand the devastating impact of the violence on families and communities. I have a positive memory of my time in Colombia – which is how great the coffee was. I am passionate about dignified development rather than hand-outs, and that is why I am involved in this project, which seeks to help disadvantaged people in Colombia through selling an excellent product.
