What’s it all about
Andina Colombian Coffee was set up by Maria Varela in 2017 with the aim of bringing the highest quality coffee to Glasgow.
They’re committed to sustainable practices, which is why all coffee ranges are rainforest and fairtrade certified. Andina also became the UK’s first coffee company to roast their coffee at origin. Doing so supports the economic development of coffee producing countries, as well as coffee farmers and their families. As well as that, Andina Colombian Coffee works with a Cooperative of over 2,200 coffee families that provides additional support such as diversification of crops, education, and services for enabling good harvesting practices.
Currently Andina has two Glasgow coffee shops (in the East and West of the city) where you can enjoy different filter methods like Chemex and v60 and enjoy the taste of Latin food.
‘Andina has always wanted to promote cyclists, not just for the importance of the environmental impact but also because of the huge impact and link between Bikers and Coffee that Colombia and the Coffee Federation created.
“In 1983, the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia (FNC/Fedecafe) created a cycling team (Café de Colombia). It was with this team that Colombian cyclist Luis Herrera became the first South American cyclist to win a Grand Tour in 1987”
We want to be recognised as a coffee company that is sustainable and more than happy to promote this initiative.’
– Maria Varela, Director, Andina
