The CNC was founded in 1988 in Ibagué (Tolima). In 1995, the company began to export, offering special coffees with new trademarks that identified the regions of the Tolima Area and other zones of the country. Since 2008, CNC is located in Manizales. When the Coffein Compagnie restructured its Colombian businesses, the share in CNC was raised to a 100 % ownership. Today, the company produces and exports Colombian Excelso coffees with the highest quality and security standards. The coffees are being shipped from the ports of Buenaventura and Cartagena.
The qualities of CNC are the following:
