308. Sustainable Harvest and “Relationship Coffee”
I am in Colombia this week with 20 CRS colleagues, partners and project participants from Latin America and the Caribbean to participate in Let’s Talk Coffee, the innovative value chain event that Sustainable Harvest created 10 years ago. I see lots of opportunities for learning in the event’s exciting agenda, which includes a wide range of presentations by industry leaders. And of course, the event presents lots of opportunities for face-to-face conversations with roasters and other important actors in the coffee chain. I have also been invited to present some observations on Sustainable Harvest’s “Relationship Coffee” model based on our collaborations over the years with the company’s teams on the ground in Latin America and at its headquarters in Portland. Here is a sneak preview of my presentation.
