La Molécula, by Oro Vivo, was created in 2005 with the goal in mind of rekindling the Mexican Coffee scene during its toughest times.
Roberto Zapata, founder of the company, always saw the potential and decided to bring local producers together in this project, helping them achieve better results as well as getting better pay for their specialty production.
Roberto Zapata studied agronomy as a result of his passion for the countryside and cultivation. He also is a designer of 100% MEX roasting equipment, representative of CUBIKA LAB, creator of LA MOLÉCULA micro mill and developer of extended fermentation processes for the past five years.
Forward has the privilege of working with Julio and Daniela of La Nacional Coffee to bring in top lots from Mexico. With strong relationships on the ground in Mexico, La Nacional and Forward have created a strategic alliance to support and develop the demand of specialty coffee from Mexico.
