OUR TEAM

Roberto Rios

CEO

When Grana was founded, Roberto had one vision: add value to the coffee industry in Guatemala and offer our exceptional specialty and single origin in the coffee pod market! As a small family owned business, we work to maintain the quality of our coffee in our Nespresso® compatible capsules, while helping our local coffee community, who has unfortunately been hurt by constant drop in coffee prices. Roberto had one goal, buy directly from our local producers, located less than 200 miles from our plant, and therefore support our local producers, but also their families and communities by eliminating the middlemen in the buying process!

Adriana Rios

Sales Manager

Adriana is our Marketing and International Sales manager. After studying and working in the US for 6 years, she moved back home to Guatemala to join the family business and help put Guatemalan coffee on the map, while supporting our local coffee farmers! Her hobbies include; drinking coffee with her bernadoodle who also enjoys a perfectly woofy espresso!

Roger Díaz

Production Manager

Roger is one of the original Grana team members, as Production Manager. He has been part of the company since it was first founded 2 years ago, after graduating in Mechatronics Engineering. Roger is the magic behind every capsule, working in the line of the production process, international logistics, and maintenance for our capsule machine to ensure all capsules work perfectly with your Original Line Nespresso® machines

Laura Cifuentes

 Graphic Designer

Laura is currently studying a degree in Graphic Interactive Design with a minor in Marketing. She started working at Grana in August 2019 and her responsibilities involve graphic and web design. As the one with the sweetest tooth at the office, the highlight of Laura’s day is drinking coffee accompanied by her favorite desserts.

Herbert Arias

Production Supervisor

Herbert is the face behind each capsule. Our capsule machinery is his best friend in the office, as he spends his days making sure every capsule comes out perfectly with the best taste, but also as important, with the best functionality.
