Frank de Paula
Frank de Paula was started by two young Latin American entrepreneurs looking to innovate in a three hundred year old industry. It all started when Eduardo, an engineer and coffee aficionado, started experimenting with vacuum pumps to brew coffee. He fell in love with the deep and rich flavor the added negative pressure produced in the finished cup and set to design the world's first electric vacuum brewer. Frank de Paula is named after Francisco de Paula Santander, a Colombian national hero who set up the coffee export business back in the 1800s.
