THE ANDEAN MOUNTAIN COFFEE COMPANY began after a visit to South America where the company founders met local Ecuadorian coffee farmers.  The desire to help the local farmer realize direct profit from their labor evolved into a mutually respectful relationship of fair trade practices with the Ecuadorian coffee producers. The act of kindness sparked the creation of The
Gil and George in South America at their coffee farm.
In April of 2001, ANDEAN MOUNTAIN COFFEE COMPANY started selling coffee on the streets of NYC to a handful of pushcart vendors…5 months before the tragic events of 9/11!! We were on the street -able to see, first hand- the devastation and destruction of the event.  Amongst all of the emotions we as Americans were feeling, there was also an immense feeling of gratitude felt toward all of the SELF giving First Responders! Firefighters, police, volunteers from everywhere, anywhere giving everything to help our people, our city, our country, it was overwhelming! At the time we contributed what we could, as individuals and as a company…our coffee.
ANDEAN MOUNTAIN COFFEE COMPANY operations include processing green coffee beans, buying/selling/importing coffee beans, roasting, blending, packaging and distributing the finest coffee product available in New York. Our coffee can be found across New York through NYC mobile vendors, coffee retailers, restaurants, delicatessens, professional offices, and online. What began as a small business idea has grown into a stable, consistent, quality brand founded on a continued ideology of helping others along the way.
