Field Trips

We build long-lasting, sustainable and profitable relationships with producers and roasters. And we couldn’t do this without regular visits and a hands-on approach so we are regularly visiting origin. We love to have our customers join us in origin - do ask us when we’re visiting so that you can come along. But in the meantime, we make sure you don’t miss out through our Field Trip Reports. Enjoy!
