Where Coffee Professionals meet Coffee Farmers
Coffee Origin Trips organises trips to coffee growing countries for coffee professionals to meet farmers, learn about coffee agriculture and processing, enjoy local culture, make new friends and colleagues, and even source new coffee. We promise you a life enhancing experience!
We aim to be the World’s leading Coffee trip organiser, and by bringing together coffee professionals from different countries and sectors with coffee professionals in producing countries we will foster education, knowledge, sharing, friendship, networking and business opportunities.
Unfortunately our planned trips to Rwanda, Peru and Indonesia have had to be called off due to the coronavirus situation. We are working on 2021 dates for these destinations as well as a full programme for next year and will publish these on the website soon. In the meantime we hope that all of our trippers and partners remain safe and well.
All of our trips include visiting large estates, cooperatives and smallholders, as well as seeing wet and dry milling, and also researchers, exporters ethical agencies and other key people in the coffee industry.
You will get to visit famous coffee growing areas as well as those not so well known. You will taste Bourbons, Caturras, Geishas, Catuais and experience fully washed, natural and honey processing.
