This was my first visit to this area and I was honored to be invited by FNC’s “Comite Departamental de Cafeteros del Valle Cauca” The Executive Director Mr. Hector Fabio Cuellar Lopez and […]
Day 1 As I had a feeling that the Colombian harvest seemed bit late, I and some guests took the first plane down to Bogota and further into Neiva in the Huila Region last week. Before flying to Neiva, we made a quick visit at Wolthers & Vittrup – Quality Assurance Lab for some overall […]
With Bali behind me, it was now Vietnam I was going to spend a short week visiting.

While most Brazilian producers and exporters enjoy the Carnival holidays, rains have fallen with relative abundance over the majority of the Arabica coffee areas. This is the second rain wave in less than 10 days and will certainly help to interrupt the progressive negative impact caused by the severe drought and low humidity indexes that […]
My trip revisiting the Guatemalan Coffee Cordillera started on October 18th from the small forgotten town of Champerico in the Northern Western Coast of Guatemala.
