Did you know the original Juan Valdez of Colombian coffee fame was a cubano?

We also learned that there is a Cuban connection to the Mr. Coffee story:
Mr. Sánchez first donned Valdez’s signature wide-brimmed hat in 1969. He took over for Jose F. Duval, a Cuban actor who had played the character since it was created by the New York advertising agency Doyle Dane Bernbach in 1959.
Mr. Sánchez was Colombian and grew coffee as a youth before turning to painting and acting.
As Valdez, an indefatigable farmer with a warm expression, a lush mustache and a mule named Conchita, he became an avatar for the farmers who harvested Colombia’s coffee beans and a positive depiction of a country that was often equated with terrorism and drug trafficking.
By the way, did you know that the first “Mr. Coffee” was a Cuban?  I did not. I guess Cubans are everywhere. Duval was the face in print and TV until 1969. He died in 1993.
