Listen to the “Kitchen Confidential” version of the coffee industry where we spill the, er, café behind the cafecito we all live for.
Melissa Sandoval, Emmy award winning journalist, shares her journey of fleeing from her beloved Medellin, Colombia at 10 years old, to live in Miami, fulfilling her dreams before she turned 30 only to realize there was a more important story to tell: the plight of the Colombian coffee growers and a country locked out of enjoying their own product by corporate entities.
Melissa took it one giant leap further by starting her own coffee company, Intuición Café, to buy directly from Colombia’s coffee growers, sell online in the US, nationwide, and give back a percentage of the proceeds. Now that’s a Latina business model!
