El Salvador

The Journey of the Bean

A special report from David Yake, Tony’s sales & training specialist.

I had the good fortune of travelling to Honduras and El Salvador on our buying trip in March. My experience, limited as it was, showed me that growing and processing excellent coffee requires an enormous amount of both patience, as well as urgency. Here I’ll provide a rough sketch of how coffee gets from the tree to your cup — as well as a few connections I found between growing and roasting/brewing coffee.
