About Markos & Christina

THE HEADS and HEARTS BEHIND “LOS AMIGOS”

Markos grew up in a coffee producing family in Guatemala. When he first came to Germany a couple of years ago, he was wondering why so fewer people really knew about how coffee farms work. He should soon find out when he started his career as a barista in Salzburg and Vienna …

… Since then, he is somehow possessed by diving deeper and deeper into all aspects of the coffee chain. But it needed a fateful turning point in his life until he came to the idea to start sourcing coffee in Guatemala for the European market. This turning point is called Christina. On a magical new years eve party in the middle of a dance floor in Vienna, Christina and Markos met and have never been apart since. Well – except the time Markos needs to source coffee in Guatemala while Christina takes care of their smallest gang member Frida …

… Christina is a very passionate coffee drinker, film producer, and logistic geek. So one night, in their small house on an old coffee farm in Antigua, Guatemala, they had some good cup of coffees and started to dream. And the end of this dream is called Los Amigos …

What we do

As good friends, we listen closely to our producers and to our roasters. Our aim is, to connect both sides in a way, that everyone can benefit from each other. We want to improve the quality of coffees not only in origin but through the whole supply chain. For this, we aim for full transparency in all steps we do, to build trustworthy relationships.

What we care about

So every coffee we source and offer to our roasters is an invitation to a circle of coffee loving friends that are truly supporting each other in learning and development. You will find this attitude in all our offers:
We find hidden treasures of coffee and offer a constant high  coffee quality
We take a deep dive in the needs of our roasters and arrange our service to really support you in your goals
We create a full documentation of all farms we work with
We provide a network of producers and coffee passionates
We take good care of high professional standards regarding the ex- and import of coffee from Guatemala to Europe
We like to smile and work with a good feeling

Why we do it

Los Amigos stands for friendship & trust.

We believe, that with friendship, trust, support and transparency, we can grow all together in a sustainable and resilient way. We think it is crucial to learn from each other and to act in the interests of the whole chain. And this is what a good cup of coffee is all about.

This is why we offer professional speciality coffee sourcing and importing service. Our work-style is driven by passion, honesty and fun. We have a close relationship to our clients and we like to treat them with love and care. On the other side, we don’t take everything too serious, because with good friends, you usually laugh a lot. Our roots are in Guatemala, so we really like to present our latin heart. And on the other side, we are based in Germany, so we are thrilled by well organized & trustworthy German spirit as well.
