[wpg width=”203″ height=”300″ align=”right”]On March 7, the Direct Trade Event is bringing together farmers and roasters in one place via Skype and video creating a forum for producers to directly sell their coffee and for roasters to connect with the producers to start building the foundations for long-term, sustainable relationships from abroad. Ten farmers from Costa Rica will participate. Some are COE winning farms. The roasters who attend will have the opportunity to cup the coffees, meet the farmers and buy directly.
The Direct Trade Event is on March 7 (the evening before Coffee Fest), 6-8pm at the Joe Pro Shop. 131 W. 21st St., New York, NY 10011.
This is Terra Bean Coffee’s pilot project to achieve its mission of making direct trade easy and accessible to independent roasters and providing producers with new opportunities to directly sell their coffee. The event is sponsored by Dallis Bros Coffee and Joe Coffee.
The event is directed towards coffee buyers, but all coffee enthusiasts welcome. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. To RSVP, email or sign up at www.coffeeally.com.
