Link up with the coffee supply chain. 

Our coffee-education trips are designed to offer professionals of all experience levels the chance to expand their knowledge and context of the supply chain: They are geared toward highlighting various aspects of coffee agriculture and cultivation, processing, technology, commercialization, and culture within specific producing communities. We specifically arrange these trips as opportunities for coffee professionals looking to gain a better understanding of coffee farming, milling, and export/import, and gain or build upon their understanding of coffee production.

Specialized curriculum has been developed to connect the dots in each coffee-producing country we visit. In addition to seeing production on farm visits, cupping coffees, and getting calibrated with one another, roasters joining us on any Coffee 101 trip can expect to come home with the necessary knowledge to translate to their customers the challenges and opportunities coffee farmers see on a daily basis in the field and at the mill.

Upcoming Coffee 101 trips:

January 14 – 19, 2019

While the focus of these trips is not on sourcing, attendees will have the opportunity to cup and potentially forward-contract lots based on tastings and conversations conducted during the time in-country.
