Origin Travel

Origin Trips 2024

Field visits and cupping trips play a crucial role in our commitment to sourcing the finest lots, fostering producer relationships, and maintaining a strong presence throughout the entire product cycle. We travel to each origin several times a year and we love going with our customers.

During field visits, roasters can develop a deeper, more cultural connection to the coffees they buy. For those buying coffee from a specific origin or region, it is a chance to see the direct impact of your purchasing and to meet the farmers or washing station behind your coffee.

It’s also an opportunity for producers to learn more about roasting and where their coffee goes. There will be time to take photos and videos that you can then use for your own marketing material.

On cupping trips, roasters are part of our purchasing process with exclusive access to early selections which can substantially save costs.

Some trips may blend farm visits with cupping sessions.

COULD THIS BE SOMETHING FOR YOU?

Our origin trips are for coffee professionals with green coffee purchasing responsibilities. Although such trips come with a lot of work and a busy schedule, you will be able to escape from your everyday routine, enjoy spectacular scenery, and meet the coolest people.

You will always be accompanied by one of our expert buyers or a sales representative. We will arrange hotels and transportation at origin and plan the entire schedule. You are responsible for arranging your own flights, visas, travel insurance, and necessary vaccinations.
