La Fortaleza Espresso
Back in late 2020, we were invited to join a buying trip in Colombia. Unlike other sourcing trips where everything happens on site at the farm, COVID-19 had prevented us doing so.
Virtual Coffee Buyers Caravan could only happened virtually.
Thanks to technology and collective effort by the organizers, logistics partners, and importers, we were invited to participate and bought two special lots from the event.
