Friends, we are working on specific pages for each region. Within these pages, look for a breakdown on what we mean by “traceability”. It’s not only about varietals, soil and microclimate. It’s also about who is doing what. Who are the cherry producers? Who is processing the coffee? Who is exporting it?

For now, here is some general information on the regions we are expecting shipments from. Contact melanie@collaborativecoffeesource.com with inquiries.
