A first generation Canadian girl with a deep love for her Colombian heritage. She was visiting her family in the city known for its ‘eternal spring’ season, Medellin, Colombia. During this trip, the famous Feria de las Flores, Spanish for Festival of Flowers was underway. And this girl, Ingrid, was perusing a few of the stalls along the bazaar when she came across something extraordinary. Before her was a coffee infused wine called CAFVINO™. Curiosity and adventure instantly took hold. Moments later, a small sample was in her hands, glistening in the sun, imploring her palate to traverse into a unique, wonderful and delicious drink that is simply Unlike Anything.
Love at first taste; immediately, Ingrid needed to know where she could get this prodigious drink back in Canada. But to her disappointment it was not available outside of Colombia. At that point a passionate mission materialized. Upon her return to in Canada, Ingrid recruited Schifer Imports Ltd. That was back in 2006. Six years and milestones later, on November 27, 2012 CAFVINO™ was finally introduced to the world for the very first time, naturally, in Ingrid’s residing city of Edmonton. The city fell in love with this unique concoction. Onward from Canada, CAFVINO™ will soon be across the globe.
