It’s Back to School! And Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is getting into the spirit of learning by creating very short educational videos. Each Monday, we’ll release a new one on a range of topics.
Here is an Introduction to Farm to Cup Coffees. In later videos, you will learn about Direct Trade, Micro-Lot Coffees and Single Origin Coffees.
The day after arriving in Guatemala, Genaro from Servex and Fernando from our long-time Direct Trade partner, Finca Santa Ana, picked me up and we began the two-hour drive to the Santa Rosa region, which is east of Guatemala City.

But once I landed, I was ready to go, and excited about the possibility of finding some special lots from one of my favorite coffee origin countries.
