Back from the Road: Peru and Ecuador
Our Sustainability and Producer Relations Manager Kim Elena Bullock recently returned from a week in South America that included a visit to San Ignacio, Peru, to meet with the five communities of Valle del Santuario, and a stop in Ecuador to explore a potential new partnership.
This "Back from the Road" trip report, found in its entirety in our ORIGINS section, focuses on Kim Elena's meeting with the Cenfrocafe cooperative and the growers of Valle del Santuario. The dialog she recounts underscores the importance of our collaborative, personal relationships with coffee growers and offers insight into the growth and progress made possible through open, respectful communication along the coffee chain. Please stay tuned for another report from her travels in Ecuador.
