ProgenCo-founded by Maria Palacio and John Trabelsi
Maria witnessed firsthand the struggle to maintain a living through coffee. When she moved to the U.S. and saw that coffee shops sold a cup for more than $5, she knew someone had to do something to help her community back home. But it's not until she brought John to Colombia that the two of them started brainstorming on a company that would provide a high-end customer experience and takes care of its farmers.
Their passion for uplifting others has helped them build a flourishing business and overcome small business obstacles in a crowded market multiple times.
They’re on a journey to create the next big coffee company.
