A family affair
About 100 years ago our great grandfather Macario Angel decided to grow coffee in the highest mountains of Chiapas. His passion for the "black juice" led our grandfather Efrain Angel and our father Oswaldo Angel “The Angel Family” to follow his steps, first as direct coffee growers and thanks to their expertise, knowledge and the legacy they received, we started with the selection of the best coffee beans not only from one specific region but from the best coffee producing regions of Mexico.
Mexico is famous for the richness in its soils which gives its people the advantage of being able to grow multiple varieties of coffee beans with different balances, flavors and aromas to please all kinds of palates. We grew up with coffee, among coffee bags, coffee smell and coffee beans. We love what we do and we know coffee, it is in our heart and soul.
Sometime around 2001, we decided we wanted to go further and to be able to work with growers around Mexico, only the best quality, which in many cases does not come from the bigger farms but from small producers and with a lot of effort from the whole family and a hard working team, we opened our first roasting business in Mexico City and began to develop new blends, try new varieties from different regions, cupping with professional coffee tasters, attend as vendors in different coffee fairs and innovate the market with our quality products and services.
In 2017 we decided to sell our coffee also to our northern neighbors in the United States. Why not enjoy the taste of home or that memory of your last trip to Mexico every morning with your first cup of coffee? Barbara Angel, great grand child of the founder Macario Angel is now running operations and distribution from Orlando, Florida.
