The Virtual Sourcing Trip is your new way to source great coffee from a distance. From the comfort of your home office, we invite you to cup and source top micro-lots and community blends from Colombia, and to make lasting connections with the farmers behind the cup.
The Virtual Sourcing Trip is an exclusive digital free ride. You don’t pay anything to receive 15 Colombian coffee samples on your doorstep, roasted and unroasted.
The global situation forces us to be creative as a community. The trip is our answer to continue relationships in origin in a responsible way. The Virtual Sourcing Trip brings you closest to origin today and pioneers the future of sourcing because you:
The trip starts today. By saving the date and signing up you secure your free seat for the online event on Thursday the 11th of February 2021.
As you submit your details, we will reserve your free samples and make sure they arrive on your doorstep two weeks before the 11th.
The trip takes you to the heart of Antioquia, Colombia, to the Municipalities of Ituango, Amalfi, and Sonson. Ituango and Amalfi are emerging from decades of conflict, and both carry tremendous potential for specialty coffee production.
Antioquia offers you sweet and diverse flavor profiles, with scores varying from 83+ up to 87 pt. During the virtual trip, there is plenty of opportunities to discover the Antioquia Cooperative and the farmers behind the coffees. And there is time to discuss cupped coffees with your fellow travelers too.
The Colombian Coffee Growers Federation (FNC), USAID, Coffee for Peace, and Trabocca bring you the Virtual Sourcing Trip. As Trabocca, we specialize in Ethiopian coffee, but with the help of the FNC and USAID we were able to source great coffees from Cauca. Today, the FNC and USAID pave the way to Antioquia so we can bring these quality coffees to your doorstep.
The experience and structure of the FNC, USAID, Coffee for Peace, and Trabocca enable you to connect directly with coffee farmers and the Antioquia Cooperative. That is why the Virtual Sourcing Trip is based on the direct trade model: as organizers, we facilitate your sourcing efforts.
Unfortunately, the Virtual Sourcing Trip is full. Don’t worry, though. We will organize more virtual trips to Colombia in the future.
As soon as a new trip date is set, you will be the first to receive an invite. Sign up here.
