Buendía coffee has its company located in Chinchiná-Caldas, with an industrial operation of the National Coffee Fund that produces and exports freeze-dried coffee with more than 45 years in the market; today it allows it to have a presence in more than 60 countries and be in the five continents. It has positioned itself as the best quality / price ratio in the world market; The certifications of the management systems, the product and those required by some clients, have become differentiating factors at the time of the sale of their products. Freeze-dried coffee is a soluble product obtained through a sophisticated freezing process. To understand the basis of the process known as lyophilization, it will be enough to take as an example the daily phenomenon that occurs when, in the middle of summer, we open the refrigerator's freezer and a small cloud of steam forms, water, as a result of the introduction of hot air coming from outside through the open door, has gone directly from the solid state of ice to the gaseous state without going through the intermediate liquid state, as is usually normal; This phenomenon is known in physico-chemistry as "Sublimation"; in a similar way it is possible to dehydrate the previously frozen coffee extract, with the contribution of the necessary calories the phenomenon of lyophilization occurs, which consists of its passage to steam, without previously melted, preserving the small solid coffee particles and thus obtaining a granulated soluble coffee powder. All soluble coffees, including freeze-dried, as they have been made through a dehydration process, constitute a product with very little humidity and for whose conservation they must be kept in hermetically closed containers and thus the coffee preserves its organoleptic properties intact. It is a coffee elaborated in a subtle and careful way, the low temperatures and a gentle drying allow it to preserve intact the flavor and aroma of the roasted grain; This is its secret, which has led it to position itself as a soluble, incomparable and extraordinary coffee.
