TRAVELS 2018/2019

March 25th – 31st of March – Cupping at the peak

Alexander and the Addis team will be there to cup through loads of samples. This is normally the best time to cup to see the broadest range of both washed and naturals. The coffees are also a little rested so it might be easier to select what you are looking for. You can stay there all week, or just come for some days to cup offer samples with us. We will make sure you have a lot of options related to what you are looking for. Let us know in advance when you will be there. 

Fly in and out any days between the 24th and 29th of March.

Let us know your schedule and we can arrange accommodation for you. This trip can also be combined with cupping in Kenya.

Purchase planning 

If you know what you’re looking for in terms of volumes, processing methods and/or specific washing stations let us know! You can also prebook coffees with us in small or big quantities. For more than 100 bags of contracted coffees you could buy them directly on FOB terms and do the imports yourself, or ask us for deals on shipping and financing.  

November & December is the peak in terms of visiting washing stations and understanding the overall quality of the harvest. Mid January throughout April is peak for cuppings. Washed coffees are normally ready to cup mid January. Naturals often start to see our cupping table from middle of February and onwards.
