Green Coffee Essentials For Roasters Working With Coffee Growers

Course Date

  • 17 - 19 APR 2019
  • June in Guatemala!

This 3-day course brings together coffee roasters and coffee growers. Working together we:

  • Understand the logistics from farm gate to roaster's dock
  • Analyze green coffee
  • Evaluate sample roasts and production roasts
  • Explore growing, processing and drying capabilities and possibilities
  • Create a sustainable economic model for both parties

The mission of this course is to create the skill set necessary for a coffee roaster to work effectively with a coffee growing partner. Several experiments consistent with what roasters are currently asking of their coffee growing partners were conducted on the coffee that will be sorted, graded, scored and evaluated in this course. Working as a true partnership, the coffee grower and the roaster will account for all costs of goods sold and determine break-even and acceptable profit-margin price points for green and roasted coffee. This course is co-taught by a
