About algrano


algrano is a global startup based in Switzerland. We are developing an online platform which aims to empower coffee producers by allowing them to market their coffees directly to coffee roasters worldwide.

The team is planning to relocate to Brazil early 2014 for this one-year acceleration program.

We are three Swiss longterm friends who left their jobs to launch algrano one year ago. We are fully motivated and have big ambitions for algrano.
