Buencafe was born of the pride, desire, and willingness of the coffee people, led by Don Arturo Gomez Jaramillo, General Manager of the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation. (FNC) who, in 1973, had a new initiative: to freeze-dry Colombian coffee, the best coffee in the world. A freeze-drying factory was then constructed in the heart of the coffee zone in Chinchina, Colombia. With an initial production of 1,800 tons per year, the Colombian freeze-drying factory began to export the product to different countries like: Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany. Buencafe learned their "demand for quality" and used it as the rule in all of Buencafe? s industrial processes. Today, Colombian freeze-dried coffee factory is called ? Buencafe Liofilizado de Colombia? , a name that follows its philosophy and its objectives, as it seeks to ensure that all those involved in their processes, from the coffee growers to the consumers, always receive the best of the best. This way of thinking has given Buencafe an excellent market positioning which has allowed it to expand its annual production capacity to 11,500 tons of 100% Colombian freeze-dried coffee.
