Experience The Best Colombian Coffee With Andina Coffee!



Maria Varela & Colombian Farmers

Our Partners

Andina Coffee is the creation of Maria Paz Varela Hernandez, Colombian , specifically from Cartagena, the north of the country and  who moved from to Scotland in 2017. I (Maria) knew that there was a market for speciality coffee from Colombia in the UK and I have worked hard to bring some of the best Colombian coffee beans to the UK.

After some time trying to sell online coffee, doing research and knowing that there was a huge competition out there, I decided to open a coffee shop with the bad/good luck that just after signing the leasing of the property the first lockdown in Scotland was announced. My husband and I worked hard to get the premises ready and we took turns with family members to help us with the refurbishing of it. After months of work we were able to operate as a takeaway in Dennistoun. Fast-forward  3 years without going into too many details we decided to expand and open our second coffee shop in the West End of Glasgow.

In Andina Coffee Co. we consider the hard working coffee farmers – who handpick our best Colombian coffee beans – artisans. Our beans travel thousands of miles from the Andean (Andina in Spanish) Region of Colombia, South America, to your cup.

We are the only coffee roasters in the UK that roasts its coffee at origin with the aim to add value in the producing country, and improve outcomes for Colombian coffee growers as a result

The idea is that the profit from the sale of the roasted coffee then stays in-country and consequently drives economic development in coffee-growing communities.

We are proud to work with Fairtrade suppliers who provide quality coffee beans and fair working conditions for the artisan farmers. Andina Coffee is the only coffee beans in the UK to have the Protected Geographical Indication – Café de Colombia (PGI – Colombian Coffee), A guarantee of origin for Colombian coffee growers and distributors since they allow them to guarantee the authenticity of their product and compliance with the quality standards of Colombian Coffee.

I had an amazing experience at this cafe. It’s the best coffee I have had in Scotland. It was referred and it was amazing. I would highly recommend it. It is clean and it has a great atmosphere. The staff is very friendly too. I would give it 5 stars. I travelled all the way across the city, just to get to it (as I heard about it). It was well worth the travel wnd I will definitely be making it my regular place. Ohhh and the music was amazing and even better is that you can take home a bag of this amazing coffee! Win Win!

Lovely chilled, friendly place, I had company but would have easily have felt at ease on my own reading etc, friendly if you wanted to chat but also unobtrusive if you didn’t. Great find, can’t wait to go back.
