A Match Made in Aguadilla - Café Ama & Vittata Gastropub!

By Claudia Quezada  The west coast of Puerto Rico is home to many wonderful restaurants, including Vittata Gastropub in Aguadilla.

On May 30, Vittata Gastroprub invited Café Ama Love to their restaurant where we served our product for the day. Knowing that our beans are locally grown in Puerto Rico really suited the restaurant's theme.

Using coffee to build business relationships

 By: Desiree Mieses, Managing Partner at Lumiere Bay   Being born in San Juan, Puerto Rico and since I can remember, coffee has been a part of my mornings. I studied my Bachelor’s and Master’s in Business Administration at Bentley University in Massachusetts and worked over 29 years in the financial industry.  Working in this industry allowed me to understand the importance of building relationships.
