My name is Jhampoll Gutierrez Gomez, I was born and raised in Colombia and moved to the UK many years ago. I am a Colombian born British Citizen, I love the UK and consider it my home but I recently decided it was the right time to reconnect with my roots. This was how the idea of the Colombian Company was born, a small company with the aim of showing the British Public the best that Colombia has to offer.
The tricky question was deciding where to start! With so much lovely Colombian produce to share, it was hard to know where to begin. I have however always had a life long passion for coffee, I grew up surrounded by coffee farms in the "Coffee Triangle" area of Colombia, so I decided this had to be our first product.
We have just started importing speciality green coffee beans of an outstanding quality, from small farms who struggle to compete with larger, industrial scale farms. It is very important to us that our coffee is directly traded, ethically sustainable and that the relationship with the coffee farmer goes further than just a commercial transaction.
We are able to use our close links with Colombia to ensure we are sourcing the very best each season. We plan to add plenty more wonderful products to our catalogue. Watch this space!!
In the mean time, if there is anything you would like us to source for you please drop us a line and we'll get on the case right away.
We are proud to bring a little bit of Colombia to the UK, your purchase supports not only us, a small start up company but many small farmers in Colombia. Gracias
