Rediscover the flavors of Venezuelan coffees from the traditional to the new generation of coffees and enjoy a brunch with the typical Andean flavors of the land of coffee.
By 1919, Venezuela was among the top 5 coffee producers in the world, exporting 85,000 tons of high-quality coffee. After a history of difficulties, disincentives to production, expropriations, regulations, export bans and low price cycles, production today barely reaches 25,000 tons.
However, the deep roots of the coffee tradition, numerous independent and union initiatives, a new generation of entrepreneurs, the varieties and microclimates present in the producing areas, a cycle of high prices and the growth of the specialty coffee market, unique in that Venezuela is competitive, have created favorable conditions for the resurgence of Venezuelan coffee.
