The priest who is now the only remaining bishop of the province of Aquiles has left his parish in the capital, where he had a regular coffee service for his parishioners, but only now is he turning to a new coffee company to make his coffee in the city.
The bishop of Aquile, Father José Antonio Bautista, told reporters on Friday that he had decided to sell his coffee company because of rising costs in the country.
“This is the moment where I am going to go to a coffee company that does not have a presence in the province,” he said.
Bautista said the coffee company would make a new version of the coffee in Spain, adding that the cost of production was lower than what he was used to making in the past.
The news of the sale of the company was reported by the national daily El Pais, citing two sources close to the situation.
