El Salvador, the place to be !

Now that we have been able to take a step back from our latest agency opening in El Salvador, we really wanted to tell you about this great project for Belco, why, how, with whom...

E pur si muove !

We are currently facing a world pandemic, but hey, it’s not the end of the world. Probably the end of the world as we know it, as the song says at the end, but it’s still moving. And so are we, and we must act accordingly. What should the specialty coffee industry look like tomorrow?
Covid 19 Report - What is the situation origin by origin?
| 2020-04-10
Here we go with our third report from the sourcing team, since the explosion of COVID-19 in France, for this one we have thought in one very particular, as we want to make a quick update in some countries (as we keep gathering data from our team but also from our partners), but also wanted to present two interviews that we considered would be of an interest for you as a roaster.

The first with Geunha Park, founder of Fritz Coffee Company, a roastery in South Korea made by Angel. A roasting side of the business who lived a couple of months before us in Europe, the explosion of COVID-19.

And the second one with our partners Rodolfo & Betty, from COMSA, in Marcala, Honduras, made by Marjorie. A producing partner, who entered to it, a couple of weeks after.

Two sides and two faces of the business, who we thank for their time.

And a last part with our very own view & perspective for the specialty industry after the pandemic. Hope you enjoy reading this report, find it useful, and above all don’t hesitate in reaching us with your news, comments & eventual questions. We are here for you
