Back from the Road: Saludos, Guatemaltecos
Upon recently returning from Central America, Counter Culture Coffee's Sustainability & Producer Relations Manager Kim Elena Bullock offers us a detailed report about her visit with the Recinos family of Finca Nueva Armenia in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. A crucial part of our direct communication with coffee farmers, such personal visits build trust and lay the groundwork for long-term, mutually supportive relationships with our producer partners at origin. During this most recent trip to Guatemala, Kim met up with Javier and Jorge Recinos in Guatemala City, where they cupped coffee together, discussed quality development projects for the upcoming year, and visited the mill where Finca Nueva Armenia's coffee is processed for export.
