From the Gripiñas neighborhood of Jayuya to Europe
In the image you can first see Don Jaime Oliver, the first generation of coffee growers at Café Gripiñas.
Café Gripiñas has not disappointed at all. Its client in London is the Harrods Food Hall chain, a department store that has a concept of artisanal food and roasting that seeks to offer its customers the best grains in the world. Without a doubt, the Harrods roaster catalogs this coffee as one without equal and of great excellence. So much so, that it offers the equivalent of $120.00 per pound of roasted coffee. On the other hand, Diester Kaffee in Hanover, Germany is another big customer that roasts this Puerto Rican bean and values it at €80.00 a pound.
Being able to introduce you to Café Gripiñas is something that fills us with great pride. This coffee, without a doubt, is a worthy global representative of our most resilient agricultural industry. It also presents us with the great opportunity we have to reach the European market with more consistency.
Hurricane Maria affected Puerto Rican coffee growers, but where some saw failure, our farmers have seen opportunity and inspiration to continue this great legacy of coffee growing puerto rican
