Growing regions

We have a regional auction every week during peak season (August - February typically) where we cup through over 500 lots to get to the gems we need to create our blends. Our quality team selects the right coffees and creates blends from estates and AMCOSes (cooperatives) based on the needs of our clients. 

Our sustainability team works with the farmers conducting agronomy and coffee quality/processing trainings. Our trainings have helped the groups to improve and maintain their cup profile.
