Alienum phaedrum torquatos nec eu, vis detraxit periculis ex, nihil expetendis in mei. Mei an pericula euripidis, hinc partem.

I am proud to be a third generation Colombian coffee grower, carrying on my family’s legacy of excellence. Growing up, I ran through the fields of my grandfather’s coffee farm in Piendamo, Cauca, Colombia, learning invaluable lessons about tradition, hard work and best practices. 

My brother and I returned to our roots and started Villa Myriam Coffee in 2009, with a shared passion to provide the world with the finest coffee possible. We went above and beyond to become certified and educated through the Barista Guild of America (BGA) and the Rosters Guild of America (RGA), ensuring that we offer only the best. Join us in savoring the fruits of our labor – the truly inspirational taste of The Brew Coffee.

I gained a remarkable reputation in the industry, and as a result, I was recruited as a barista for one of the world’s most prominent Hollywood stars. This provided me with numerous opportunities to travel globally and expand my knowledge of coffee.

Join me on an exhilarating journey! I have ventured through the bustling streets of Asia and the serene countryside of Europe, delving into the coffee cultures of five continents, numerous countries, and countless cities. My expeditions have instilled in me a fearless belief in the richness of diverse traditions and origins. Let me empower you to revel in the delicious coffees the world has to offer!

In 2019, I strategically sold Villa Myriam in order to place greater emphasis on The Brew. This shift in business model has allowed me to concentrate on small batch roasting, while working collaboratively with my community in the United States and Colombia. I invite you to join me and my community of coffee enthusiasts in supporting the passion and hard work of small coffee growers across the globe.

Coffee connects us all, regardless of where we come from or what our backgrounds may be. Its ability to bring people together has ignited my passion for it, motivating me to strive for greatness and to inspire others to do the same.
