Coffee and Compañia Cafetera La Meseta S.A. represents in my life a complete adventure full of learning, sharing with others, a world in which every day it immerses you and won’t let you leave. From my position, I try to make the best effort so that the bond in the business chain reaches a happy ending, trying to understand the client and their wishes according to their instructions, and thus organize everything in such way so that both the Company and our client are satisfied with the results.
Compared to other coffee companies, the Company believes in its people, in the possibility to create more employment through producing and marketing this valuable fruit that is coffee, which causes passion and pride. These motivate me every day to generate better commercial relations with the shipping companies, clients and customs agents because I am convinced that these good relationships help to make an active and assertive process.
Moreover, how not to believe in coffee, if this has been an emblematic product of Colombia. Although many have lost the faith to continue producing this product, the Company tries to renew that thought. Not only among its managers but in all its collaborators and coffee producers, inspiring each day to generate new ideas, being at the forefront of a diverse market present today to export coffee; because we understand that the trends and tastes of people have changed through time, becoming more demanding and specialized. These are the reasons why we want to tell stories through each brand, that when the customer drinks and enjoy a cup of coffee from La Meseta, feels the history of a town full of passion, that regardless of their difficulties, they want to move forward.
That’s why on this day I decide to BE HAPPY and let myself seduced by the aroma and flavor of a CUP OF COFFEE.
However, that was before entering to the coffee world. This incredible journey began more than 16 years ago, and like many other compatriots, had no idea what coffee was: its flavor, nuances, origins, magic, complexity, and simplicity. Coffee has allowed me to comprehend more about our people, culture, the ones within coffee zones pending of every bean harvested and plant that produces it.
Coffee is a unique product of nature. No other product in this beautiful country relates so many people, because coffee has this kindness, allowing the distribution of income directly to the regions, the farms and the most needed. Coffee has allowed me to be an ambassador of our land in distant lands, a representative of all those who strives to deliver it to us and distribute it worldwide.
Coffee does not discriminate race, religion or ideology, transcends borders and connects communities between origins and destinations. Coffee is a universal product.
Making a stopover in this trip through the Colombian coffee landscapes, I have found the inspiration, connection and passion to understand and create new products from this beautiful bean, evolving and contributing with small grains of sand to our coffee culture. This trip doesn’t end here, the story continues, I do not know precisely where, but I can say that it won’t be boring.
