This journey allowed him to meet beautiful people, explore amazing sites and venture into the most extraordinary coffee farms. Rudy found something in common that unites most Latino countries, this is called coffee. Rudy developed a strong bond with a number of farmers and producers across several Latin American countries such as Bolivia, Peru and Colombia. The more he connected with these farmers, the more he felt responsible for sharing their stories and product with the world.

Now Rudy is an exclusive coffee merchant, he brings coffee directly from small coffee farms in Latin America. Rudy works only in small batches of top-quality beans. The product comes in ready to sell, all the roasting, packaging, and branding is done in Latin America. Rudy is now proud of his company Cocotu because he’s able to offer chemical-free, exclusive coffee beans that are produced through sustainable means.

Listeners, Rudy tells us how he went from working in Corporate America to creating the business of his dreams by traveling to South America.

I hope you get inspired with this one and share it if you think someone you know needs this message.

A special thanks to Cafe con Pam for this amazing interview!
