Who’s “Gio”

Hello, I’m Giomar Hidalgo but better known as “Gio”, a coffee lover and I want to tell you my story.

I am from Ecuador, a country that is not  well known for its coffee, yet, but here I found the best Coffea Canephora varieties I have ever tried. I had the great opportunity to work in the German coffee world for many years. I began to work for my coffee mentor at a Piaggio Ape at the weekend market in Bremen. Then I worked for a few years in the oldest Roastery in Cologne. Currently I’m working directly with the people who make it possible to get the best coffee beans for your daily morning coffee cups.

I studied Environmental Engineering and completed a Master’s degree in Natural Resources Management and Sustainable Agriculture. These studies are the reason why I wanted to get back to the basics. I was missing having contact with the land! Therefore, I’m working and sharing with the Ecuadorian Canephora producers. Together we are improving their productivity and the quality of their coffee beans as well as helping them to reach the European market.
