We purchased our 5th place auction lot at Carmo Best Cup, with all of the increased price going directly to the Hervaz family.
Having cupped all the coffees and put the top 15 in order, we were ready for the live auction.
Four weeks ago, I arrived home from a 3-day trip to beautiful, sunny, delicious coffee-producing El Salvador.
‘Best of Huila’ received green bean samples from over 600 producers in the region this year.
Our company was part of a very special coffee buying experience in Colombia, called ‘Huila Best Cup’. PART 1 discusses how the export team works with producers.
I just got back (well, a week ago) from visiting the Menendez Family farms in El Salvador! We have been buying coffee from their farms for the past five years, and they just keep getting better. The amount of detail and care they put into their operation continues to amaze me
The origin trip to Brazil was at the end of September for 10 days. The trip was organized by one of our importing partners that we purchase some of our coffee through, Atlas Coffee Importers, and included three other roasting companies, Broadcast Coffee from Seattle, Cafe Grumpy from New York, and Hunter Bay from Montana. We flew to Sao Paulo, and toured the heart of Brazils coffee growing region in Minas Gerais.
