Javier Gutiérrez Abril
Hello everyone! My name is Javier. I was born and raised in Guatemala. It took me twenty-four years, six months living in Wyoming, a barista and roasting certificate from ANACAFE and a bachelor degree in engineering from Universidad del Valle de Guatemala (UVG) to leave my gorgeous country.
I came to Scotland in 2017 and automatically fell in love with the place. After graduating with an MSc in Finance from the University of Strathclyde, I founded Caribbean Goods (you can read about my entrepreneurial journey here or watch this video interview) It has been a long journey, but I couldn't be more grateful and excited!
I consider myself an activist working towards a greener and more educated world. I believe I came to this world to cause a positive impact on the people I meet, and in the meantime, I am selling goods from the Caribbean region. Feel free to send us a message and ask for Javier! I love meeting new people, and I love to speak!
P.S. You can see how my hair grows throughout the pictures and videos! :)
