The Story

Jorge was born in Armenia in 1989, and has been working in coffee for 22 years, taking over his family’s farm  after his father sadly  passed away when he was 12 years old. At this young age he shouldered the responsibility for his family’s fortunes and traded schooling for agricultural work. He is a successful cupper, roaster and farmer. His skill and dedication is obvious to see, and he is pouring all of it into his farm, his family and his community. Since beginning to undertake more in depth professional development in 2017, Jorge has gained a number of qualifications in coffee quality and processing from Cuba Biotech and our friends at Technicafe,  including the Q Processing qualification and  Pre-Q Arabica Quality training. Jorge’s coffees have been making waves, and the accolades are building up. And he’s showing no signs of slowing down. The list is impressive:

What our clients say

I have already, and will continue to recommend Abe & Co to people looking for excellent quality freshly roasted beans.

Abe & Co cleverly roast their beans to provide some amazing flavour and notes. From smooth chocolatey washed to boozy marmaladey natural, all excellent, highly recommended coffee.
