Well there always seems to be plenty going on in the coffee world – Intrepid traveller Kit Rendle has been working on a lovely farm in Colombia, learning all about the coffee process, making some friends and coming away with a deep respect for the lives and work of the people he met. Colombia is a breathtakingly beautiful country with wonderful people who are proud of their heritage and yet deeply interested in visitors who come to share their lives.
Says Kit ‘ one of the farmer’s sons spoke some English and was keen to practice on me – likewise I made sure I replied in Spanish! He took the time to show me around the farm – we picked coffee and after a full day’s work I came away with true admiration for the work that these people do. They care about their environment and are proud of what they are doing.
‘When I showed them pictures of the Edgcumbe’s Roastery in sunny, sleepy Sussex they were amazed to hear about the range of speciality grade coffees we were buying. They were especially pleased to hear how popular the Colombian Sabanitas coffee is!’
The Roastery is filling up with sacks of our favourite green coffee beans – all waiting to be roasted to perfection by our talented team of roasters. As ever, we stay true to our mantra- that FRESH is BEST!
