Gregorio Menendez Bustelo (born June 21, 1894) traveled from his native Spain to Cuba as a young man, and moved to the United States in 1917. He founded the Café Bustelo coffee company in The Bronx, New York in 1928. His product became popular among Cuban exiles who preferred to prepare it in espresso coffeemakers rather than the then-common method of filtering it through a coffee "sock". The company remained successful throughout the 20th century, and was known for its distinctive yellow and red cans.
