Dedication. Expertise. Passion.
In the heart of 2019, destiny wove a narrative that brought together two powerhouses: Alexander and Jose, both second-generation farmers with a pedigree – one in the realm of wine, the other in the realm of coffee. A meeting of minds that would change the game.
Alexander, a maven of exploration, delved deep into the intricacies of the coffee supply chain. Not once, but twice, he particpated through every step, from the lush farm terrains to the steaming cup.
Meanwhile, Jose, the academic virtuoso, adorned with the esteemed title of a university professor, commanded a network that spanned the coffee landscapes of Central and South America, where his name rang with respect.
They understood well an important perspective regarding the specialty coffee industry and the need for enhanced transparency. In their view, the absence of independent verification of coffee producers poses a significant barrier when it comes to meeting industry regulations, metrics, ESG and ethical sourcing claims.
Enter the fusion. The amalgamation of Alexander's hands-on coffee odyssey and Jose's academic prowess birthed ifinca, a groundbreaking initiative sprouting from the vibrant city of Medellin, Colombia.
Brace yourselves for an odyssey of flavor, innovation, and a coffee experience like no other. ifinca: where passion meets expertise, and every sip tells a story.
