Join CIE for special Coffee@CIE on Wednesday, October 20 from 3:30 - 4:30 PM on Zoom. We'll be joined by Pedro Benitez ('15), Operations Manager at Cereza Coffee, for a discussion about Latin American Coffee and the Coffee Industry.
After graduating from Loyola, Pedro worked at a coffee exporter in Honduras managing all sales, purchasing, and inventory data in addition to building relational databases and coffee futures hedging. "I [did] all sorts of activities," Benitez says. "Among the more interesting of these [was] helping small coffee producers from mountains in a different region of the country (close to Nicaragua) sell their coffee directly to German roasters. I have been to more mountains than I can count, and I [got] to drink really, really good coffee."
