In this episode, I talk with Jon and Ervin of the Colombian Coffee Connection. Colombian Coffee Connection LLC. is a specialty coffee importer & roasting Co. in Minneapolis, MN. Through their humanitarian initiative Coffee With Heart, they are committed to giving 10% of all profits back to the Nasa indigenous people.
We talk about having patience, being adaptable, and the human side of business. We also talk about how Ervin left his home County and moved to the US, knowing no English, and found success in business. We talk with Jon about his business experience and how he uses his superpower of patience to make business moves.
