Born and raised In Colombia, co-founded the company in Denver in 2015 with a dream in mind - connect coffee consumers with the coffee culture who make each bag of beans possible. An engineer by trade, with an MBA under his belt, he decided to start the company after getting shoulder surgery and being laid off the next day: "Bad things happen for a reason. Taking the lesson and following through is what makes it a valuable experience instead of just a simple failure". His goal for White Tale Coffee is to offer 100 different types of coffee as an online subscription, getting to share the tale from each one of the farms he visits. Relishes the outdoors - hikes and camps in the summer, skis in the winter - , enjoys traveling, and gets worse at golf despite practicing more and more. Occasional fishing gets in his way. Nicolás saw an opportunity with the 3rd wave of coffee to remain close to his roots, family while pursuing his career goal of starting his own business.
