... What I have researched is that... the women in the picture is a mermaid, a siren or mixoparthenos in Greek Mythology and it had been modified over the years... but there is no reason why they chose it as their logo... I think it has to do with the company's heritage and coffee being imported for the W Indies.
It is a twin tailed siren from the 15th century. She is as mermaid and probably representative of the sailoing days when coffee was imported from the West Indies.
