At Cafesco for three generations we have specialized in growing high quality 100% arabic coffee, we roast at origin Concordia – Antioquia – Colombia.
And the story begins like this, our grandparents in the 50’s started with a small plantation of coffee trees, which with years of work and dedication grew and passed from generation to generation not only coffee but also knowledge about it. tradition and love for this wonderful fruit.
Those years of work and dedication literally paid off.
In 2013 we decided to create Cafesco as a brand of roasted coffee at Origin with the illusion of bringing the best of our coffee directly to the final consumer.
Our beginnings as a roaster were with more attitude and desire than real knowledge in the roasted coffee market, during the first month we sold only 20 pounds to our family and friends. Despite how little we were able to sell and aware of the number of barriers and all the work that we had ahead of us in terms of market demands, economic, technical, equipment and knowledge requirements among many other aspects that we had to manage and improve. , the love for coffee, discipline and commitment to our coffee growers led us to work hard.
Since then we have not stopped continuously improving or growing as people, as a company and as a coffee family. And this is how we have achieved the position we have today in the local and global market. And those that we lack because we are convinced that the whole world deserves the best coffee, the coffee of origin, the coffee from Concordia, CAFESCO. So this story will continue …….
