The power of three-as-one is unstoppable.
Miami, Florida: In this episode, we open with pictures from 1961 just before Castro forced his ways into the homes and business of this family. And though he took over everything, he could not take over their spirit.
This family left behind all their worldly possessions but came to the USA with their greatest possessions -- their integrity, their love of family and friends, their creativity, their love of Cuban espresso coffee, and the knowledge needed to rebuild their family business from scratch.
Meet the Souto family, owners of Rowland Coffee Roasters in Miami. They started with a coffee delivery business, bought Rowland, then Cafe Pilon, then Cafe Bustelo, Medaglia D'Oro Espresso, Java Cabana and more.
Learn how the sons continue down the path their father forged. By investing in technology and buying their competitors they are now the largest roasters of Cuban espresso in the world.
In memory of José Angel ''Pepe'' Souto, the Patriarch of the family who died at the age of 91 on November 18, 2007.
