About MABÓ Coffee
MABÓ Coffee Roasters is the home of Bogdan Georgescu, the 2019 World Coffee Roasting Vice-Champion and Romania Roasting Champion. Our story begins in 2020, a small roastery in Bucharest with a dream and focus on quality coffee … and pretty much nothing else. Due to this, you will experience exclusive, remarkable coffees each time.
Quality first and nothing else!

Situated on the “Macizo Colombiano” (the Colombian Plateau), which surrounds the high peaks of Tolima and Huila, the region is an important source of water and wildlife, in addition to being prime coffee growing land.
This coffee was produced by 52 smallholder coffee producers from the region, all of whom are members of the organization ASORCAFE (Asociación de Productores de Café del Oriente Caucano).
ASOCAFE represents, in total, some 450 producers from across the Department. This specific lot, however, has been selected only from growers hailing from the neighboring sub-municipalities of Pedregal (70%) and San Antonio (30%). Every single microlot delivered was cupped and reserved due to its scoring 83 points or above by the Association’s cupping lab in Pedregal. These stringent standards result in very limited quantities of this exceptional blend of 70%+ Caturra and approx 30% Variedad Colombia being made available for export.
The region’s violent past, with a heavy presence of FARC guerrillas, had historically prevented the FNC (Colombia’s excellent national coffee board) and specialty-focused exporters from establishing a presence in the region. As violence has diminished, it has enabled the growers in the region to seek increased access to markets for quality, not only taking advantage of the region’s wonderful coffee growing conditions but also the economic resource that nearby tourist destinations bring (for instance, the World Heritage Site “Parque Nacional Arqueológico de Tierradentro”). In the future, we fully expect increasingly great things in coffee from the area.
