The coffee story

Luz Helena, the mother of Felipe and Carlos Arcila (the brothers who run Cofinet to export the family's coffees) has always been an incredible advocate for coffee from an early age. She grew up in Armenia, Quindio, which is part of the coffee triangle in Colombia. (The coffee triangle use to be the highest producing coffee of Colombia 20 years ago).  This lot comes from  Finca Maracay, an 8 hectares farm in Armenia.

Luz Helena has not only managed her own coffee farm, but she has also managed other farms that produce other commodities such as avocado and oranges.

Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.

2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:
