Coffee Tradition History

WE ARE COFFEE DESIGNERS - Coffee Tradition History

Café 1959 is a coffee company based in Quindio, Colombia. For the past 50 years, we have been involved in selling coffee within the commodity market. Jimena (my wife) and I, we are the 3rd generation that embraces the past, feels it and integrates it, but looks forward to creating, innovating and building new paths.

We made the decision to redefine the company’s role within the coffee community, shifting into Top Specialty Coffee. This is why we believe in change, movement, innovation, and the transformation of what we do every day.

We’ve been breaking molds in the coffee tradition history and convey a vision of constant growth. Today, we view Cafe 1959 as a vehicle for crafting solutions that align with the requirements of the best roasters and importers worldwide.
