WELCOME TO CAZENGO COFFEE:
In 2010, Cazengo Coffee was founded by Mr. Miguel in the Cazengo province of Angola, Africa. Miguel's family had been coffee farmers there for many generations prior to Angola’s war for independence. Miguel and his family became refugees, along with countless others, who fled their farmland in 1975 due to the onset of war in the conflicted country.
Miguel headed to America in 1994 where he earned a B.A. in Business Administration at the University of Michigan, and a Masters Degree in Economics at Eastern Michigan University. The wars in Angola finally came to an end in 2002. But the independent nation had been left devastated and in need of formally educated leaders. So Miguel returned home to help rebuild the infrastructure of Angola. After years of hard work, he began restoring his once beloved farming community back to the days when his parents and grandparents had lived there. To a time when the smell of coffee permeated all corners of their village.
