We’ve recently returned from a string of amazing sourcing trips—Rwanda, Ecuador, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and, most recently, Colombia.
Colombia was one of the first countries we ever visited, and each time we return we’re reminded of what made that first visit so special. Colombia, aside from being ruggedly gorgeous and wildly exciting to travel in, has some of the most kind and generous and truly thoughtful farmers we’ve ever encountered, from our friends at Finca Florestales, to the inimitable Wilfredo Ule Vargas of Finca Alcatraz.
We took a little extra time this trip so we could really have some one-on-ones with the producers we’ve been working with for some time now, to see how we can best support their efforts producing world-class coffee. We had some really lovely conversations, which we’ll have more on soon.
