We are dedicated to giving coffee professionals and enthusiasts the most comprehensive experience of coffee at its origin that anybody could give. Our style is professional, but friendly and relaxed, and whilst learning about coffee is paramount we also place importance on meeting other people, be it members of the group or farmers and other professionals from origin, enjoying their company and indeed learning from them. And of course experiencing different cultures, be it in big cities, on safari, up a volcano or on a lake, or indeed on a coffee farm. Completes the enrichment of the trip. If you join us you will undoubtedly have a life enhancing, if not life changing, experience.
A deposit will be requested when the details are finalised and full payment made a month before the trip.
The cost will be inclusive from collection at the airport and the first meeting for dinner in a hotel near an international airport to breakfast on the day of departure. All hotels/accomodation (sometimes we may stay on farms), transport and meals are included in the price. It does not include airfares (unless they are internal and part of the trip) as we have participants from all over the world who will have to make their own travel plans.
If you want to stay longer we can arrange for you to extend your stay and make your own payment to the hotel.
Meeting the farmers and the local people is an essential of the trip . We will visit research centres to see the cutting edge of coffee development. Normally we will visit a place of local culture to increase our knowledge of the country. For example, in Honduras we visited the Mayan Temples at Copan.
Enthusiasts will visit many countries to learn how the differences in agriculture and preparation affects the flavour of the coffees. Within the group friends are made from all over the world – a wonderful networking opportunity.
Education is the essence of positive selling and experience is the key to knowledge.
Your clients will appreciate it when you can describe the taste of a coffee cherry picked from the bush and the reasons why your coffee stands above the competition.

We will then contact you when the details, dates, cost etc. are finalised and ask you to officially register for the trip and pay us a small deposit. Your only problem will be deciding which trip to choose!
