Origin Field Lab
Since 2004, Counter Culture Coffee has hosted an Origin Field Lab. On this week-long trip, students participate in each step of the coffee production process at origin—from harvest to export—and learn about the benefits and challenges of building long-term coffee relationships.
The 2015 Origin Field lab covered the complexities of contemporary coffee farming in general—and in Honduras in particular—and with on-site experiences that illuminated the intricacies of coffee cultivation and processing for farms of varying sizes.
Lab topics will included coffee botany, organic agriculture, coffee processing, contemporary challenges and opportunities for farmers, the structure of coffee cooperatives, milling and exporting, and Honduras’ socio-political history as it relates to the coffee industry.
