Meet and Greet with Badi Bradley and Alejandro Cadena our Colombian partners from Virmax and Caravela Coffee. These partners work with barismo to bring you Meridiano and Matambo, Gildardo Gutierrez and other excellent Colombian Coffees.
Alejandro Cadena has a degree in Economics from the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá. He joined Virmax in 2001 and in 2002 he set up Virmax Colombia. Alejandro is the managing director of Virmax, but still visits with coffee growers and continues to seek out new relationships with producers to bring in exciting coffees.
Badi Bradley is a specialty coffee importer for Caravela Coffee located in North Carolina. Barismo has worked with Badi for many years to sustainably bring in coffees from Colombia. Caravela, though mainly dealing with Colombian coffees, brings in excellent lots from Honduras, Nicaragua and other Central American countries.
