There were rumors the steep, jungle-covered mountains of Colombia were hiding some of the world’s finest coffee beans. We, an international team of coffee lovers, arrived in Medellín in search of this caffeinated treasure, and we set off on an adventure to find it. We traveled the country by plane, car, jeep, foot, and sometimes by mule. We built relationships with farmers who were growing exceptional beans almost in secret, having no way to sell their product to a wider, coffee-craving audience. We heard inspiring stories of Colombia’s renewal, and felt we could contribute by investing not just in coffee, but in the people behind it.
So we embarked on our most exciting adventure yet: The Coffee Quest.
