Juan Coronado knows a thing or two about running a successful F&B business. With a background in engineering and hospitality experience spanning more than two decades, he not only co-founded a Michelin-star restaurant in Washington DC and coffee-shop chain, he also co-launched an exquisite tequila brand, Mijenta, in 2020. Hospitality News ME attended an exclusive tequila masterclass at Vintage Wines & Spirits, organized by Gabriel Bocti — the official distributor of Mijenta in Sothern Europe, the Middle East and Africa — to chat with Coronado about his journey, his love for tequila and why sustainability is at the heart of everything he does.
