The coffee story

Natalia co-runs a coffee farm and micro-mill in Frailes, with her parents and her brother’s family. She comes from a coffee-producing family, and so she grew up seeing her father working on the farm from a young age. In 2020, they decided to start a micro-mill, which they named Tito Miel. The unusual name, which literally means ‘Grandpa Honey’, comes from the way one of her young sons pronounces his grandfather’s name, Miguel Ángel.  Natalia says that for her, coffee signifies family and hope, and she believes that it is very important not only in the history of the country but also in the story of her family. She dreams of giving an educational emphasis to the farm in the future, to help children feel connected to coffee and to the earth itself.

FAQ


Shipping
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.

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

2 payment methods are accepted on Algrano:

1. Buy now, pay later
Pay your coffee after its delivered in Europe. This option generates an additional fee, displayed in the shopping cart.

3. Pay 10 days after placing the order
We will send you a 10 day invoice straight after you placed your order.
