The coffee sector has taken place as one of the most important industries in Colombia due to its effect in the country’s economy. Its massive exports and high demand create Jobs for around 550.000 families. SENA supports this valuable industry through the training and instruction of human talent required in this industry, the development of research projects applied to incorporate new technologies to improve quality and productivity, and the provision of seed capital through the fund Emprender to create new business units.
Café Botánica de los Andres is one of the entrepreneurships, beneficiary of the institution, which has turned into an innovative company that commercializes special coffee from the Caldas region at a national and international level. Santiago Pineda, the company’s general manager, will have the chance to travel along with SENA to Expo Dubai, one of the most important stages for world economic reactivation where close to 190 nations participate to open new doors and expand the export of their products.
"In the Colombia pavilion visitors will have the chance to try the fruity and sweet notes of the coffee from Caldas in a barista show made with the support of two SENA apprentices."
Visitors to the Colombia pavilion will have the chance to try the fruity and sweet notes of the coffee produced by entrepreneurship from Caldas in a barista show made with the support of two SENA apprentices who make part of the team that will travel to represent the institution in the Arab country.
