In the graphic, the circles represent the main actors in our value stream. The dotted lines indicate potential paths for the product’s movement, while solid lines are more common tracks. The icons surrounding the circles describe specialized activities occurring at each step. We depicted these actions as happening either “always” or “sometimes” at each stage to reflect different methods of production.
Every coffee has a unique story and this graphic is meant to help illustrate that story. Our value stream map is not a static description, but rather a jumping-off point to trace a coffee’s journey from farm to consumer. It also demonstrates how quality coffee is the result of an entire value stream’s focus on standards and excellence.
