Meet The Farmers

Quality coffee begins at the farm. The hard work that is done there is essential to the quality we - as a roaster - want to bring to our customers. In the days prior to the WBC we will get a visit from two of the farms we work with. Both have offered to come and give a talk about their farms. This will be a great chance to meet some of the people behind some incredible coffees and hear about the work they do.

June 17th *Sold Out*
19.00 - 21.00
Finca Vista Hermosa
Edwin Martinez

Edwin is the third generation on the Finca Vista Hermosa farm in the highland Huehuetenango region in north-west Guatemala. His granddad Don Felipe bought a coffee lot called Michicoy back in the 60's and in 1970 he bought his second parcel, Finca Vista Hermosa, where the wet milling is done. Edwin is a certified Q Grader and will represent United States in the Cup Tasting Championship this year.
