OUR STORY

Old photograph of family back in Colombia

 

It started as a dream of the courageous... my Great, Great, Grandfather who, similar to his ancestors that originated from Medina and settled in Antioquia in the late 1800’s, travelled with other families by mule and settled in what today is known as Quindío, seeking a better future.

They knew beforehand that they would have to populate an inhospitable land that was touched with the magic and charm of an inspiring green landscape. These brave families devoted the rest of their lives to agriculture. They discovered that coffee would constitute their main economic future.  The coffee and its people marked the industrial growth not only of this region but also of the entire country. Just like these people we are devoting our lives to bring you the finest coffees from the varied regions of this extremely rich and diverse country called Colombia.

Café Muisca was created in honour of my late maternal grandmother and mother to share and promote the ideals and passion they both left me, in addition to continuing and maintaining our traditions of coffee heritage. Who would ever have thought that playing amongst coffee trees as a child would have developed later in life as a dream and a passion for everything that would stand for an excellent cup of coffee.

The passion runs deep in my veins.

In Colombian culture, drinking coffee is a social event and a time to make new friendships and renew old.
