After growing the farm’s production by 30% in the last harvest, Carlos Andres is planning to develop similar relationships with more roasteries in the year ahead. "We'd like to expand the range of roasteries we're supplying, both small and big, and work with them to understand their approach and their customers," he says. "Algrano makes working directly really easy, as they can provide support with the shipping, warehousing and financing, so we can be confident in delivering end-to-end."
Carlos Andres also hopes that the relationship with Francisco and the rest of the Nomad Coffee team will continue to develop further. "Hopefully Nomad Coffee will be able to come and visit the farm to see what we're doing and enjoy spending some time in the area." The farm is located in the town of Juayua in the Apaneca Ilamatepec mountain range. Francisco agrees. "I'd love to continue buying from Finca Las Brisas every year and continue working with Algrano. It's great not having to worry about shipping and other practical concerns."
"Nomad Coffee are experts in satisfying their customers, and we're experts in growing the coffee. So with Algrano taking care of the logistics, it's a perfect synergy," concludes Carlos Andres.
