The República Organic Story
In 2005, I visited my birth country, Colombia, with my husband and kids to share my childhood hometown. However, our holiday was marred by the disappointing quality of local coffee, which I discovered was being exported, turned into instant coffee by multinational companies like Nestle, and then sold back to Colombians at inflated prices. This injustice spurred me to resign from my journalism career at ABC and create República Organic, an ethical company committed to ensuring fair treatment for Third World coffee farmers without compromising on taste.
As the Founder and Director of República Organic, I'm dedicated to promoting ethical and sustainable values in all aspects of life, and I welcome your questions, comments, and feedback as we strive to make delicious and ethical food choices together.
