THE GENUINE ORIGIN PROJECT
THE GENUINE ORIGIN PROJECT will be taking the top three winners of the Golden Bean North America 2017 on their annual trip to Guatemala in early 2018! GO is a new coffee importing arm from Volcafe Specialty and ED&F Man, importing high quality coffee grown under an internal set of standards called the Volcafe Way designed to maximize sustainability as well as farmer prosperity, and packed into 65 lb boxes designed to be easily shipped around the US.
On this trip, winners will see the Volcafe Way first hand by visiting model farms and meeting directly with producers, see the wet mills, dry mills, and exporting offices GO has on the ground in Guatemala, and cup coffees with our team. Winners will be getting a firsthand look at Genuine Origin’s fully integrated supply chain, and how we connect thousands of small farmers in Guatemala with small-to-mid-size specialty roasters in the US.
