Field Trips

We see ourselves as the ‘coffee catalysts’ building long-lasting, sustainable and profitable relationships with producers and roasters in more than 70 countries. 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 detailed Field Trip Reports. Enjoy!
