Owner Jhampoll Gutierrez opened his lively, welcoming coffee shop The Colombian Company in November last year, but his passion for coffee started during his childhood. Today he imports the best speciality green coffee from Colombia, buying only from small farmers. This gives him direct contact with producers who struggle to compete with big farms selling to large companies.
The company is based on quality, traceability and a direct relationship with the farmer. As well as ethically sourced and expertly made coffee, including the specially created Bombon (espresso and condensed milk), the range available also includes Colombian chocolate and Panela (sugar cane) as well as delicious cakes and savouries. Ground coffees are also available to buy from the coffee shop and online.
