Episode 91: The magic of Colombian coffee

In today's episode we're continuing our series exploring the vast and diverse Colombian coffee market. 

In part one, Alejandro Cadena from Caravela Coffee, shared an overview of the country’s rich tapestry of microclimates and coffee varietals.

And today we're immersing ourselves in Colombian coffee culture by speaking with Carolina Castañeda, Director for Europe, Federacion Nacional de Cafeteros de Colombia and Jaime Andres Moreno, COO, Café Quindío.

In these conversations we discuss the latest trends in specialty coffee in Colombia and find out how coffee has become so closely connected to Colombia's national identity.

Credits music: "Besos de Miel" by Marley in association with The Coffee Music Project and SEB Collective
