Our Coffee Journey video series exists to share more about the coffee industry. We believe that the more we all know, the better we can build ourselves towards a sustainable, fair and delicious industry. We have created Coffee Journey to dive into a variety of topics that you can use to learn and share. If there is a topic that you would like to learn more about, and we haven’t covered it, you can contact us at the bottom of the page.

In this episode, we discuss our method and philosophy of sourcing coffee, how we monitor quality after we approve a coffee, what happens when the quality on arrival is different to the original sample and what happens when a coffee has defects but still tastes good.
